Hold a True Friend and Don’t Let Go

 

 

Friends….. …
They love you,
but they are not your lover
They care for you,
but they are not from your family
They are ready to share your pain,
but they are not in your blood relation.
They are……..FRIENDS! !!!!
True friend…… ..
Scolds like a DAD..
Cares like a MOM..
Teases like a SISTER..
Irritates like a BROTHER..
And finally loves U more than a LOVER.
Send 2 all ur good friends even me if I am 1 of them.
C how many u get back….

Nail 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.

It won’t matter how many times you say “I’m

sorry”, the wound is still there.  A verbal

wound is as bad as a physical one.

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.”

Show your friends how much you care. Send this to

everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if

 it mean s sending it back to the person who

 sent it to you. If it comes back to you,

 then you’ll 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

 Please forgive me if I have ever left a   “hole”   in your fence  (,”)
