A Box full of Kisses

A little girl made a box of Gold wrapping paper for her father and was punished

The story goes back some time ago, a man punished his three-years-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, daddy"


The man was embarrassed by his earlier over reaction, but his anger flared again when he when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her stating, "Don't you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside?" The little girl looked up at him with tears and cried, "Oh, daddy, it's not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They are all for you, daddy." The father was crushed. He put his arm around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.


Only a short time later, an accident took d life of the child. Ever since then, her father kept that Gold box by his bed for many years and, whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

 

In a very real sense, each one of us, as a good human being, have been given a gold container filled with un.  conditional love and kisses.. From God, our parents, children, friends and family members. There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this.
