A Box Full of Kisses

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.

Wow this touched my heart greatly, sometimes we forget why we are here and that material gain can never compare to the Giving of our Love. :myheart:

Thanks for sharing

Many Blessings

funny, isn't it
how humans don't see
sometimes, for the most part,
the love that has been given them
they go on crying out they aren't given
life unconditionally....

life is conditional but that doesn't mean
folks aren't giving love .... truely, some
bark instead of speak
then tell us we should be grateful for what
we have....
halo,..... when you bark it bites.....LOL....
LOVE floats like spirit and is all knowing
it make you feel good about you.
