A Barrel of Gold

A kindly happy man once was asked why he acted as though he didn’t have a care in the world. He replied, “Because I have a barrel of gold at home.” Some thieves broke into his home to steal his barrel of gold. He did have a barrel of gold at home, but no one could steal it. His barrel of gold was the love he had for his family, and the love his family had for him.
