Here is a moving story that is being passed around through the Internet. I hope you will not shed a tear or two after you read this story.
The story goes that some time ago a man punished his 5- year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became even more upset when the child pasted the gold paper so as to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her father the next morning and said, " This is for you, Daddy." The father was embarrased by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty. He spoke to her in a harsh manner, " Dont you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?"
The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, " Oh Daddy, its not empty.I blew kisses into it until it was full." The father was crushed.He felt on his knees and put his arms around his little girl, and he begged her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.
An unfortunate accident took the life of the child only a short time later and it told that the father kept that gold box by his bed for all the years of his life.And whenever he was discouraged or faced difficult problems he would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.
In a very real sense, each of us as human beings has been given a golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children,family, friends and God.
There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
