Who is RICH.. Who is POOR..?!?

One day, the father of avery 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 the 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 you learned from the trip?
:: the son answered...
i saw we have one dog and they have 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 gardens.. and they have the starts at night..
our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horrizon..
we have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond..
we have servants who serve us but they serve others..
we buy 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 ehat would happen if we all give thanks for we don't have, instead of worrying abour what we don't have.. APPRECIATE every single thing you have..

this really good right??? it's good to help us to refresh our perspective and appreciation.. enjoy your day guyss...:)

love this entry.. :)

sebab tu kene bersyukur dengan apa yang ada. tapi ini tidak bermakna utk tidak perlu mengejar impian hidup, tapi at least berkongsilah kelebihan yang ada dengan orang lain. mudah-mudahan akan memberi kebaikan dan kegembiraan kepada mereka juga.
