A Fitting Thanksgiving Story


One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to
the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor
people live so the son would be thankful for all that he had. They
spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be
considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the
father asked his son, " How did you like our trip?"

"It was great, Dad."

"Did you see how those people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

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

The son answered: "I saw that 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 fifteen electric
lights above our garden and they have millions of stars above theirs.
Our back lawn reaches to the fence and theirs reaches all the way
to the horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they
have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve
us, but they serve one another. We have to buy our 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? I want to give thanks for
everything I have, instead of worrying about what I don't have.
On Thanksgiving take the opportunity to appreciate every single
thing you have, especially friends!

"Life is too short and friends are too few." Thank you for being my friend!
