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 was saved by the friend.
After recovering from the near drowning, the friend wrote on a stone:   “Today my best friend saved my life.”
 
The friend who had slapped and saved the best friend asked, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?  
 
The friend replied ‘when someone hurt you we should write it down in sand, where winds of forgiveness can erase it away’.  But when someone does something good for you, 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 blessings in stone.
