Sand & Stone

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 swim. The one who had been

slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but

his 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 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.
