    That really makes you think! How true! Wealth does not always mean money, but what you have in your life to be grateful for. Thanks for the inspiration!

    It's all in how you look at it!

    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.

    have. What is one's person's worthless object is another's prize
    possession. It is all based on one's perspective.

    Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for all the
