   NAILS IN THE FENCE   

 

 

 

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 scars just like these.

 

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." 

 

A family that truly loves you is a priceless jewel indeed!   Although a diamond is extremely durable, you treat it with respect like the precious jewel that it is.  In it's natural form, the diamond is just an ugly rock.  But with care becomes a brilliant gem.  You are only given one natural family.   Don't abuse it!"
