A lesson to learn

How to hold your temper
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. YOU ARE MY FRIEND AND I AM HONORED!

Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole.

If you don't have the guts to write your name then don't talk to me. i don't wanna talk to unforgiving people. The thing is i do realize my mistake and i will not commit them again.
