The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her 4 year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and said, “This is for you, Momma. ”

The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over-reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner. “Don’t you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there’s supposed to be something inside the package?”

She had tears in her eyes and said, “Oh, Momma, it’s not empty! I blew kisses into it until it’s was full. ”

The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life.

Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and 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 human beings, have been given Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and GOD. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

    This is an awesome story and should be a lesson to parents who yell at their children all the time before talking to them first. They don’t know how all the constant yelling is affecting their child, how it will impact them in school and in their adult life. Sorry to say, I was one of those parents. ?

    People who once got tired of me easily are now tireless of me. Those who thought I am silly feel I am very useful now. Ones who looked down upon me now feel I am the diamond. Those who called me shameless now call me strongest. Some who dumped me as a garbage want me back as a precious gift. Clearly I did nothing from then to now…???
