Nail in the Fence

Nail in the Fence
 

Make sure you read all the way down to 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 come 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."

It's a national friendship week, show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a Friend, even if it means 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. 

Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole.
