the one about badrul and a little story...

i've been very busy for the past few days... in fact, i think i'm going to be quite busy for the next couple of days or so... tapi, insyaAllah, when i have more pictures masa anugerah era, i will put it up here... tengah dok merayu siapa-siapa yang ambik gambar malam tuh... muhahahaha... anyway, today i dapat email from a friend with this little story... maybe you guys pun dapat jugak before, but i thought it was such a nice story that i nak letak kat blog nih... mana tau, satu hari nanti, i need to read it again to bring back my perspective on things...


One day a father and his rich family took his young son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose to show him how poor people can be. They spent a day and a night in the farm of a very poor family. When they got back from their trip the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"

Very good, Dad!"

"Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked.


"And what did you learn?"

The son answered, "I saw that we have a dog at home, and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden, they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden, they have the stars. Our patio reaches to the front yard, they have a whole horizon.

When the little boy was finishing, his father was speechless.

His son added, "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are!"

Isn't it true that it all depends on the way you look at things? If you have love, friends, family, health, good humor and a positive attitude toward life, you've got everything!

You can't buy any of these things. You can have all the material possessions you can imagine, provisions for the future, etc., but if you are poor of spirit, you have nothing!
