Heavens Gold

The Gift of the Childs Box
Author Unknown

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her 5 year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child pasted the gold paper so as 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 found the box
was empty.

She spoke to her 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?"
 
The little girl looked up at her with tears in her eyes and said, "Oh,
Momma, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was full."
 
The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her
little girl, and she begged her to forgive her for her unnecessary 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 a Golden
box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family,
friends and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
