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 .
Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning
and said, “This is for you, Daddy. Today is your Birthday” He was embarrassed by
his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was
He yelled at her, “Don’t you know that when you give someone a present, there’s
supposed to be something inside it?”
The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said,”Oh, Daddy, it
is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy.”
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged
for her forgiveness.
It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for 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 of us as humans have been given a gold container
filled with unconditional love , kisses and emotional feelings from our
children, friends, family and God. There is no more precious possession anyone
could hold. Dont give much importance for the Physical GIFTS . Emotional gifts
which you may not see - but it is more valuable !!!
