Subject: ~~**The Box**~~
I received this from a friend who had a choice to make. It meant that I
had a choice to make too. I've chosen. Now
it's your turn to choose.
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 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 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
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
