The story goes that a man punished his 3-year-old son for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper.

Money was tight and he 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 boy brought the gift box to his father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy."

The father was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty. He spoke to him in a harsh manner, "Don't you know, young man, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?"

The little boy looked up at him with tears in his eyes and said, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was full."

The father was crushed. He fell on his knees and put his arms around his little boy, and he begged him to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later and it is told that the father kept that gold box by his bed for all the years of
his life. And whenever he was discouraged or faced difficult problems he would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

ps. 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.

Family and friends are like angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.
