There once was a little girl who had a bad temper.
Her mother gave her a bag of nails and told her that every
time she lost her temper, she must hammer a nail into the
back of the fence.
The first day the girl had driven 37 nails into the fence.
Over the next few weeks, as she learned to control her
anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled
down. She discovered it was easier to hold her temper than
to drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when the girl didn't lose her temper

She told her mother about it and the mother suggested that
the girl now pull out one nail for each day that she was
able to hold her temper.
The days passed and the young girl was finally able to
tell her mother that all the nails were gone.
The mother took her daughter by the hand and led her to
the fence. She said,
"You have done well, my daughter, 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

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.
