A Wealthy Father Is Floored By His Son’s Wisdom And Compassion
One day a very wealthy father took his son on a trip to the country for the sole purpose of showing his son how it was to be poor. They spent a few days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.
After their return from the trip, the father asked his son how he liked the trip. “It was great, Dad,” the son replied. “Did you see how poor people can be?” the father asked. “Oh Yeah,”said the son.
“So what did you learn 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, ‘It showed me just how poor we really are.”
Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don’t have. What is one person’s worthless object is another’s prize possession. It is all based on one’s perspective.
Sometimes it takes the perspective of a child to remind us what’s important.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation so that we can “adopt” a child and see to it that their dream wish comes true. These wishes may only last a week or even just a day but it empowers children to fight harder, while also giving both them and their parents an unforgettable experience. Medical professionals testify to the impact that these wishes have as they observe their patients feel better and comply more readily with the treatments when they return.
We are so excited for this opportunity, but we can’t do it without your support!
Please come alongside us by referring a friend/ family member/ co-worker or by choosing us as your Real Estate Team. Not only will they benefit from our award-winning service, we will donate a portion of our income on every home sale towards our goal so that we can make another’s child’s wish come true like Nicholas’; read Nicholas' wish story below.
