The Gold Box
Some time ago, a friend of mine 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 tree
Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her
father the next morning and said, "This is for you,
Daddy." He was embarrassed by his earlier
overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found
that the box was empty. He yelled at her, "Don't you
know that when you give someone a present, there's
supposed to be something inside of it?" The little
girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said,
"Oh, Daddy it's 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 her forgiveness.
My friend told me that he kept that gold box by his bed for
years. 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 has been given a gold
container filled with unconditional love and kisses.
There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
