The Gold Wrapping Paper

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her five year old daughter for 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 a box to put under the Christmas tree.


Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and then 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, young lady, 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 blew kisses into it until it was full."


The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little 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 her life.



Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she 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 ...

absolutely true. we always remember who hates us and who curse us or who say us bad or did bad with us. We never remember that the same person have prayed for us sum day and the same person cares us. happiness and sadness both are part of life. if sumone is giving u sadness then dnt think him bad just try to remember the moment when he gave u a moment to smile.
