The Box

I received this from a good friend who had a choice to
make. It said 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 man punished his
5-year-old daughter 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 girl brought the gift box to
her 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 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 him with tears in her
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 girl, and he begged her 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.

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.

You now have two choices ... you can:
1. Pass this on to your friends, or
2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.

As you can see, I took choice No. 1. Friends are like
angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have
trouble remembering how to fly.
