Nails in the fence

Post by [WoF]GoA.Pun on Wed May 13, 2009 2:17 am

NAILS IN THE FENCE

Make sure you
read all the way down to the last sentence.

(Most
importantly the last sentence)

There once was
a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day
the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next
few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily
gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all.


He told his
father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his
temper.
The days
passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.



The father
took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.. He said, 'You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will
never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. But It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound will still be there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

Remember that friends are very rare jewels, indeed.
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open
their hearts to us.'


It's National
Friendship Week. Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a

FRIEND, even if it means sending it
back to the person who sent it to you! If it comes back to you,
you will then know you have a circle of
friends.



YOU
ARE MY FRIEND AND I AM HONORED!


Now send this
to every friend you have!! And to your
family (they need to
know that you love them too).


Please forgive
me if I have ever left a 'hole' in your fence

Hey it looks like I might have a friend or two around here after all lol. J/K guys.

Yeah I thought that was pretty neat too. Guys over the years I am sure I have left many "holes" in the fence but I certainly have learned the importance of controlling my anger over the last few years... It can be tough sometimes and especially even more so with the ones we love because they can make us the maddest it seems..

We will never be able to replace a friend with anything, not even with another friend, God made us all unique and special and we should always treat each other as the special people we all are.

I am a millionaire guys and its because I have a million friends.... If I ask them, they would all give me a dollar......

God bless each of you.. Pun
