    the gift

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To keep in mind what the true spirit of gift-giving is about, consider the following story--
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    One day a man punished his young daughter for wasting
    a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he
    was furious when the child tried to decorate a box.







    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 when you give someone a present,
    there's supposed to be something inside it?







    His daughter looked up at him with tears in her eyes and
    said, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty, I blew kisses into the box.
    All for you, Daddy."







    The father was crushed. He put his arms around his
    little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.





    An accident took the life of the child only a short time
    later and it is told that the man kept that gold box by his
    bed for many years and whenever he was discouraged,
    he would 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 have been given a gold
    container filled with unconditional love--love and kisses
    from our children, our friends, our family or from God.
    There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
