My ex, Amanda, sent this to me and I wantd to send this along to all you to let you know how I feel about you...

A very dear friend sent this to me this morning, and I thought this one was worth sharing... with my dear friends...to remind you how important your friendship is to me.


The story tells that two friends were walking
through the desert. During some point of the journey
they had an argument, and one friend slapped the
other one in the face. The one who got slapped was
hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the
sand: "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE."

They kept on walking until they found an oasis,
where they decided to take a bath. The one who had
been slapped got stuck in the mire and started
drowning, but the friend saved him. After he
recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a
stone: "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE."

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend
asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand
and now, you write on a stone, why?"

The other friend replied:
"When someone hurts us we should write it down in
sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away.
But, when someone does something good for us, we
must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever
erase it."

LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND AND
TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE. They say it takes a
minute to find a special person, an hour to
appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an
entire life to forget them.
