A story about a father who shows his son the value of life

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On there return from the trip, the father asks his son How was the trip.

Did you see how poor people live? the father asked.

So tell me what did you learn from the trip ? asked the father.

We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden and they have a creek with 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 too live on they have fields that go beyond our sight.

we have servants who serve us, but they serve others.

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

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

Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends !
