Default Nail In The Fence

"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."

It's 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!!

Now send this to every friend you have!
And to your family.

AND

PLEASE FORGIVE ME

if I have ever left a hole.
