    The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her 5 year olddaughterfor
    wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper.Money was tight and she became
    even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate abox to put
    under the Christmas tree.

    Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the
    nextmorning and said, "This is for you, Momma."

    The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared
    again when she opened the box and found it was empty.

    She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner."Don't you know, younglady,when
    you give someone a present there's supposed to be something
    inside the package?"

    She had tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blewkisses
    into it until it was full."

    The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms aroundherlittle
    girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.

    An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told
    that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of
    herlife.Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she wouldopen
    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 aGoldenbox
    filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family,friends
    and GOD. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
