    One day . . . a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country, so he could have his son see how poor country people live.



    They stayed one day and one night in the home of a very humble farmer.

    At the end of the trip, and when they were back home, the father asked

    his son, "What did you think of the trip?"

    The son replied, "Very nice dad."

    Then the father asked his son, "Did you notice how poor they were?"

    The son replied, "Yes."

    The father continued asking, "What did you learn?"



    The son responded, "I learned that we have one dog in our house, and they have four.



    Also, we have a fountain in our garden, but they have a stream that has no end.



    And we have imported lamps in our garden . . . where they have the stars!



    And our garden goes to the edge of our property. But they have the entire horizon as their back yard!"



    At the end of the son's reply the father was speechless.



    His son then said, "Thank you dad for showing me how poor we really are."



    Isn't it true that all depends on the lens you use to see life?



    One can ask himself what would happen if we give thanks for what we have instead of always asking for more.



    Learn to appreciate what you have. Wealth is all in one's point of view.

    That is human race, for good or for bad.

    Funny how this type of story tends to be told from the rich man's perspective. That way, the message is that it's okay to be rich.<br /><br />When told the other way, the message is that it's okay to be poor. I don't think it's the same message, though.[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';)' />]
