    NAIL IN THE FENCE

    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]


    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
    [​IMG]

    of the fence.
    The first day the boy had
    [​IMG]
    driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next

    [​IMG]
    few weeks, as he learned to control his

    [​IMG]
    anger, the number of nails hammered daily
    [​IMG]


    gradually dwindled down. He discovered

    [​IMG]
    it was easier to hold his temper than to




    drive those nails into the fence.
    [​IMG]

    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.


    [​IMG]

    The days passed and the young boy was finally

    [​IMG]
    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

    [​IMG]
    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.
