This is a very good story...i liked it...hope u too like it..
this is very short story! but has a very good moral!!
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. 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 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?" asked the father. The son answered: "I saw that we have one dog and they had 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 garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole 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 others. We 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? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have instead of worrying about what we don't have. Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends! Please pass this page on to friends and acquaintances to help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.
"Life is too short and friends are too few. so keep them" But there are people, after getting something ( It may be job, wife, qualification. anything) they will feel that they got everything, and no need to listen to others. But they are not thinking that, with their feeling they are loosing so many things, they are becoming isolate from the world, nobody will speak to them, even own familiy members also.
IF THEY THINK THEMSELVES LIKE THE SON IN THE ABOVE STORY
they are the real poor people, who are not having a person to speak his personal feelings.
Try to be friendly with others, accept what you have, respect what you have, listen to the people who are caring for you...............
