A man punished his 3 year old little girl for wasting a precious roll of gold wrapping paper. His financial condition was tight and he was very angry when his girl tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.
Next day father was embarrassed when the little girl brought the gift to her father and said, “Daddy , This is for you” but his anger knew no bounds when he found the box empty.
He yelled at her, “Don’t you know that when you give someone a present, you have to have something inside ? ”
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 embraced the little girl, and begged for forgiveness.
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.
We all have been blessed with a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, friends, family and God. There is no more precious possession.
