    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.




    Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet, when our 

    wings have trouble remembering how to fly.
