All depends on the crystal you use to see life

Read this story and found it worth sharing:

One day a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country so he could have his son see how poor country people were, and could appreciate what they, themselves, had. They stayed one day and one night in the farm of a very humble farm house. At the end of the trip and back home the father asked the son: “What did you think of the trip?”
The son replied: “Very nice Dad.”
Father: “Did you noticed how poor they were?”
Son: “Yes.”
Father: “What did you learn?”
Son: “I learned that we have one dog in the house…and they have four. We have a fountain in the garden and they have a stream that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden, they have the stars. Our garden goes to the edge of our property, they have the entire horizon as their back yard.”
At the end of the son’s reply the father was speechless and his son added: “Thank you dad for showing me how poor we really are.”
