“Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.” — Native American saying
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 way back home, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?”
“It was great, Dad.”
“Did you see how poor people live?” asked the father.
“Oh yes,”replied the son.
“So tell me what you learned from this trip?” the father asked.
The son answered, “I have one dog, and I saw they had many animals. 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 stars at night.”
