One day, the father of a very wealthy family took hisson on a trip to the country with the express purposeof showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm ofwhat would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked hisson, "How was the trip?" "It was great, Dad." "Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked. "Oh yeah," said the son. "So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" askedthe father. The son answered: "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of ourgarden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they havethe stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have thewhole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they havefields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, theyhave friends to protect them." The boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me howpoor we are." Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gavethanks for everything we have, instead of worryingabout what we don't have.
