Sand And Stone.

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

THE OBSTACLE IN OUR PATH

In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it.

 Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the big stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many others never understand.
             Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one’s condition.

 

Women Should Not Have Children After 35!

Women Should Not Have Children After 35!
=====================================

This is one of those controversial statements
But I fully stand behind it.

Women should not have children after 35!

I strongly believe that I can back up this statement with sound 
psychological, medical, and financial data.

Some say, “Of course women can have children after 35!” 

They don’t know what they are talking about and I can guarantee 
they have had very little experience in the matter.

I don’t care what the doctor says.
I don’t care what your friends say.
I don’t even care what your pastor says.

Women should not have children after 35!

I don’t advise it, I vehemently recommend against it, and loudly 
and even at times rudely tell people “don’t even consider it.”

You can quote me on this. If you want to say that 
the writer of MountainWings.com said it, then so be it. 

I said it.

And I said it more than once. 

“Women should not have children after 35!”

Some will send rude e-mails proclaiming the freedom of the womb
but I still stand by what I said.

You may disagree with me, that’s your right. 
I still stand firm on the issue.

With most things I keep an open mind but not on this issue. 

If I find an exception to this rule, 
then I will be open to change but for now, 
it’s firmly closed because I have never seen an exception.

Women should not have children after 35!

35 children are enough!

This was a lesson in jumping to conclusions.
