The story goes
that 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 the friend saved him.
After he recovered
from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: "Today my best
friend saved my life."
who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After
I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now you write on a stone.
The other friend
replied: "When someone hurts us we should write it down in
sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But when someone
does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no
wind can ever erase it."

takes a minute to find a special person an hour to appreciate them,
a day to love them, but an entire life to forget them.
