Inspiring Story: 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.

Lesson from the Inspiring Story: 

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.
