>One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the 
>country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can
>be.
>
>They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be 
>considered a very poor family.  On their return from their trip, the
>father asked his son, "How was the trip?"
>"
>It was great, Dad."
>"
>Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked.
>
>Oh Yeah" said the son.
>
>"So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the 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 our garden and they have
>a creek that has no end.  We have imported lanterns in or garden and they 
>have the stars at night."
>
>"Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
>
>We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go 
>beyond our sight.
>
>We have servants who serve us, but they serve others."
>
>We buy our food, but they grow their.
>
>We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to 
>protect them."
>
>With this the boy's father was speechless.
>
>Then his son added,  "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."
>
>Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don't have
>
>What is one person's worthless object is another's prize possesion.
>
>It is all based on one's perspective.
>
>Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks to God for all the 
>bounty we have been provided by Him, instead of worrying
>about wanting more.
