Bag Of Nails .....


Recommended Posts

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

 

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"

 

 

( Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole. )

dang it man...

your really workin on all my emotions this weekend LOL

 

a true friend knows when to say they are sorry

when to not

and when to know the difference.

some arguments are meant to be won

some are meant to be lost.

my life's lessons have taught me that my true friends will talk to my face and not my back.

they will argue when they are right as will i and we can do that without personal infringements.

i got much love for you Dr t...i can tell that even in our what 8-10 times we have met, your character shines through every time.

i will call you if i need you. and i expect the same in return.

thank you.

and i too apologize to all holes i have caused as well....i know i stab at times.....i am human...flawed and all....

 

peace

Im feeling like I dont have friends, my family talks about me behind my back, my girl talks to her kids about me behind my back and her ex she talks to also about me. and no mattter what happens around me and police get involved im always the one to go to jail! whether it is my fault or their's.

Morning Jim ...

 

First of All , I'm Sorry this made you Cry ...

Surely was Not my intention .

 

A Real Friends are So Very Hard to Find ...

 

A Friend that will accept You for exactly who You are ...

 

Not what they want You to be ...

 

Trust Me Jim ... I know the Feeling of So-Called-Friends

talking behind your back or Stabbing you in your back ...

 

It Saddens me that after over 50 years of living ...

I can count my TRUE FRIENDS on ONE HAND

 

One that will be there No Matter What ...

 

One that will accept me for exactly who i am ...

 

Friendships require Effort on both parts ...

and many are not willing to invest that amount of time ....

 

Don't give up Jim ...

 

I'm NOT much of a phone person , I'm more of a face to face ...

Easier to get a Hugg that way ... :bighug:

 

Im sure one day we ALL will meet ?

 

Thank-You for Sharing Also :thumbsu:
