Nail in the fence - Part 2 (Final)

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.

It's National Friendship Week. Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means sending it back to the person who sent it to you. If it comes back to you, then you 'll know you have a circle of friends. YOU ARE MY FRIEND AND I AM HONOURED!

Now send this to every friend you have! And to your family.

Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole.

The above message e-mailed by Clement is so very touching that I had to pause for a few times reading through. Thank you, Clement Ling, for your valuable gift.
