Inspirational Stories #102 - A Box full of Kisses

A man punished his 4-year old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became furious when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, daddy".

The man was embarrassed by his earlier reaction, but he got angry again when he found out that the box was empty. He screamed at her, "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 are all for you daddy".  

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

A few months later, an accident look the life of the child. It is told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many years and whenever he was upset or discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

MORAL: Each one of us have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses... from our parents, children, family, friends, and god. There is simply no other possession anyone could hold, more precious than this.
