Wealth Is All in One's Point of View

Author Unknown

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 were....

They stayed one day and one night in the farm house of a very humble farm.

At the end of the trip and back home, the father asked the son: What did you think of the trip?

The son replied: Very nice Dad

Father: Did you notice how poor they were?

Son: Yes

Father: What did you learn?

Son: I learned that we have one dog in the house...and they have four. I learned that we have a fountain in the garden and they have a stream that has no end. I learned that we have imported lamps in the garden; they have the stars. I learned that our garden goes to the edge of our property, they have the entire horizon as their back yard.

At the end of the son's reply the father was speechless. His son added: "Thank you dad for showing me how poor we really are."
