Dad and Daughter -- Lovely Story

This is a lovely story (Please take some of your valuable

time to read it).



It's said that we have a choice to make. I've chosen. Now

it's your turn to choose.



The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his

5-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight, and he became even more upset when the child pasted the gold paper so as to

decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.



Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy." The father was embarrassed by his earlier over reaction,

but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty.



He spoke to her 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? The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, "Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was full." The father was crushed....



He fell on his knees and put his arms around his little

girl, and he begged her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.



An accident took the life of the child only a short time

later, and it is told that the father kept that gold box by his bed for all the years of his life.



And whenever he was discouraged or faced difficult

problems, he 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 and friends. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

A simple attempt to think if you can control your anger in itself is an achievement Swaminathan..:). Keep going. And keep Smiling Always..

When I was little and I was sad, angry or ill, my grandmother taught me to imagine myself taking all these negative emotions and sicknesses from my mind and body, lock them into a grey box and throw them far away :)
I did that for years and it always helped me becoming aware of my feelings and getting rid of the negative ones.

Your story made me think of the huge potential we have to fill thousand of imaginary boxes inside our minds with love, care, hugs, kisses, smiles...

The best present we can ever receive is not material, but one you can feel warming your soul, making you feel cared, not alone, putting a smile on your face.

Thanks for sharing this lovely story "Box of kisses", a really wonderful one upholding the human values and a reminder about the vital yet delicate thread of human bond that runs in between and connects every heart.There is nothing more precious than a caring 'touch' an affectionate 'hug' and a divine 'kiss'.
