the rich and the poor
6/12/2006 7:31:42 PM

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took
his son on a
trip to the country with the express
purpose of showing him how
poor people live.

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 live?" the
father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me, 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 our 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 theirs.

We have walls around our property to
protect us, they have friends
to protect them."

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for
showing me how poor we are."

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes
you wonder what would
happen if we all give thanks for
everything we have, instead of
worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have,
especially your friends!

Pass this on to friends and acquaintances
and help them refresh
their perspective and appreciation.

"Life is too short and friends are too few."

Bruce Pernes

"Never be tired of doing little things for
others. Sometimes,
those little things are the big things
which are treasured & kept
in their hearts"
