A father once took his daughter to a village to show her poverty.

After spending a full day at the farm of a poor family, the father asked his daughter, “Tell me what you saw today? Did you learn anything?”

The daughter replied, “Yes Dad, we have a pool, they have rivers, we have lanterns while they have stars, we have a dog, they have so many animals, we buy our food, they grow theirs, we have walls for protection, they have friends, we have television, they have family and relatives, we read the encyclopedia for knowledge, they read Bible. Thanks for showing me how poor we are.”

The father was speechless. He learned a lesson that day from his little daughter which changed his perspective for happiness.

Moral – Happiness lies in small things. Kids know this, and sometimes we can share their knowledge for better life lessons.
