One day a wealthy father took
his child to spend the night with a
very poor family with the purpose to
show him the reality of other people
who did not have a lot of money to spend.
On their return home, the father
asked his son what he thought
about the experience and he replied:
It has been a very good experience daddy,
I have learned that we have one
dog and they have four, we have
a very nice swimming pool but they
have the river, we have a sun roof
and they have the sky with the
stars and the moon, we have a beatiful
porch with a big garden and they have the forest.
While the child was speaking the
father was out of breath by hearing
the things his son was telling him.
Then the child added: Thanks dad
for showing me how poor we are!
For you my friend:
When we measure what we have
, the result is our perception of life .
If we have love, friends, health, sense of
humor and positive thinking, we have
everything in life.
If we are poor of spirit then...
we have a problem J
