Poor... and rich!!

Hi respectable colleagues,

Here is one of the stories that I love very much..

Poor... and rich!!

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 speechless 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 haveeverything in life. If we are poor of spirit then... we have a problem...

Agreat problem I think.... Hope to like it...

Best wishes...
