A little girl was decorating a box with a gold wrapping paper to put it under the Christmas tree. Money was tight, so the girl‘s father punished her for wasting almost all roll of that expensive paper.
However, the next morning the girl brought the gift to her father. "This is for you, Daddy” – she said. He opened a box and found it empty, so he became angry again. "Don‘t you know, that when you give someone a gift, it is supposed that there would be something inside it” – he said severely.
The little girl looked at her father with tears in her eyes. „Daddy, this box is not empty, I filled it with my kisses, all for you“.
The father was stunned. He felt so embarrassed that he could just put his arms around his little daughter and beg for her forgiveness.
For many years of his life the man kept that golden box near his bed. Wherever he felt sad and downhearted he opened the box and thought of love that the little child had put into it.
Each of us have been given a present of unconditional love from our children, family, friends and God. It is the most precious possession that anyone could hold.
