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 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 it?" The little girl looked up at him and said, Oh, Daddy it is not empty. I blew kisses in the box. All for you Daddy."
The father was crushed. He put his arms around the little girl, and begged for her forgiveness. It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for years and whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love the child had put there.
In a very real sense, each of us as humans have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, friends, family and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold. It's a keeper.
