A Good Story For Great Friends.....

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

The once was a little girl who had a bad temper. Her mother gave her a bag of nails and told her that every time she lost her temper, she must hammer a nail into the back of fence. The first day the girl had driven 37 nails into the fence.

Over the next few weeks, as she learned to control her anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. She discovered it was easier to hold her temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the girl didn't lose her temper at all. She told her mother about it and the mother suggested that the girl now pull out one nail for each day that she was able to hold the temper.

The day passed and the young girl finally able to tell her mother that all nails were gone. The mother took her daughter by the hand and led her to the fence. She said " You have done well, my daughter, but look at the holes at 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 person and draw it out. It Won't matter how many time you say "I'm sorry", the wound is still there. A verbal wound is bad as is physical one.

Friend 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...
