Rich and Poor

 Blacksmith Chase posted this and I really liked it, so I decided to share it. I thought it was really good.
Years ago there used to be a rich man who had a young son. Wanting him to learn about different ways of life, he took his son to the farm of relatively poor family for the weekend.
When the weekend was over the Dad's limo came and picked the two of them up. On there way to the airport, he asked his son if he had learned the difference between being rich or poor. "Yes I did" said the young boy. "What is the difference?" asked his Dad. "Well," replied the boy " we have a swimming pool that extends out to the patio, but they have a stream that has no end. We have one small dog, but they have five, and all kinds of other animals. We have a big house with a room for each person in our family, but they have a small house where they get to be with each other all day."
His Dad speechless, the boy said "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing?
