THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “The Best Way to Keep a Man is to Let Him Go (among other things)”

Eleanor Jones-Haynes of Pasadena, California, says “A Wealth of Information.  This book is simply AWESOME!!!  The relationship advice and experience offered from the author, Joyce Fields, is incredible.  I especially enjoyed her “no-nonsense” and sometimes humorous approach to real-life relationship issues.  And who better to get such a ‘wealth of information’ from other than a woman who has experienced it and lived it for 42 years!  I would encourage any woman, single or married, to read this book. . .you certainly won’t be disappointed.  Thank you Joyce for sharing some of your life and experiences with all of us & thanks for those recipes!!!”

TODAY’S QUOTE

DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WANTING MORE FOR OTHERS THAN THEY WANT FOR THEMSELVES.  ~ Joyce Fields

TODAY’S BLOG

Sand and Stone

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.”

The friend 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.  Why?”

The friend replied, “When someone we love hurts us, we should write it down in sand, where winds of forgiveness can erase it away.  But, when someone we love does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone, where no wind can ever erase it.”

Learn to write your hurts in the sand and to carve your blessings in stone.
