'Gold Wrapping Paper' Whats Important?

The Gold Wrapping Paper


At this very commercial time of year, here’s a story that reminds me of what’s important Laughing

Once upon a time, there was a man who worked hard to put food on the table for his family. One year during the holidays, he saw that his five-year-old daughter had used up the last of the family's expensive gold wrapping paper. He became even angrier when he saw that she had used all of that expensive gold paper to decorate just one shoebox, which she had put under the Christmas tree. He also was worried about where she had gotten money to buy what was inside the shoebox.

The next morning the little girl, filled with excitement, brought the gift box to her father and said, 'This is for you, Daddy!' As he took the box, the father was embarrassed by his angry thoughts the day before.

But when he opened the shoebox, he found it was empty. Again his anger flared. 'Don't you know, young lady,' he said harshly, 'when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside the box!'

The little girl looked up at him with sad and frightened tears and whispered: 'Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was all full.'

The father was crushed. He fell on his knees and put his arms around his precious little girl. He begged her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.

It is told that the father kept this little gold box by his bed for all the years of his life, even after his daughter had a family of her own. Whenever he was discouraged or faced difficult problems, he would open the box, take out an imaginary kiss, and remember the love of this beautiful child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us has an invisible golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, and friends. There is no more precious gift.
