This story tells about two friends that were walking through the desert.
At one point during the trip they started arguing and one of the friends hit the other in the face.
The one that had been hit was hurt, but without a further word, wrote down in the sand:
‘TODAY MY BEST FRIEND HIT ME IN THE FACE.'
They carried on walking until they came across an oasis, where they decided to freshen up and bathe.
But the one that had been hit before got caught in the mud and was about to drown, but the friend saved him.
After he had recovered, he wrote down on a stone:
“TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.”
The friend that had hit his best friend and had then saved him asked:
‘After I hit you, you wrote in the sand and now you are writing on stone, why?'
The other friend answered:
‘When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand so that the wind can forgive us by blowing it away.”
“But when someone does something nice for us, we should engrave it in stone, where no wind can ever blow it away.”

They say it takes a minute to find someone special, an hour to appreciate them, a day to get to like and love them, but it takes a lifetime to forget them.
