Sitting on a gold mine

A few years ago builders, while renovating a landmark hotel in Georgia, discovered the entrance to a shaft under the concrete floor in the main dining room. To their amazement they found the shaft led to the entrance of a gold mine under the building. The original owner built the house there when the city refused him permission to dig for gold on his property. They said it was because it was too close to the town square, but he claimed it was because he was a Northerner. It now appears that he built the house to cover-up his mining operation, until poor health forced him to sell the land. The current owners used to joke that they were ‘sitting on a gold mine’, but they had no idea just how true that really was.
It makes you wonder what treasures might there be in our own lives that we don’t realise because we’ve never really looked deep enough to see them.
