A Box Full of Kisses

The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter
for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. 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 overreaction, but his anger flared
,again 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 in her eyes
.and cried, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box
".They're all for you, Daddy

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he
.begged for her forgiveness

Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child. It is
also told that 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 humans beings, have been given a
gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses... from our
children, family members, friends, and God. There is simply no other
.possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this
