Brad’s Feel Good Moment of the Week – True Friendship
We often wonder how people like Mother Teresa loved so many people. At least I know I have wondered how she did it. We are all one big family, but somewhere, somehow, we have all, myself included, strayed from the fact that we are here for each other. Friendship and family are wonderful things. As hard as it is, let us try this week to focus on how we can become a better friend to everyone. You are not alone in thinking that this will be a difficult task, but let us try. I will give you my promise on that! Here’s a great story that will help us start!
A Wonderful Story of Friendship & Values……
A story tells that 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 bath. The one who
had been slapped got stuck in the mire and
started drowning, but the 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 other 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.
- MORAL -
Do not value the THINGS you have in your life..
But value WHO you have in your life!
Have a great week my friend, you are not alone in trying to make this world the best place it can be! It starts with you and me.
