  The Gift
  ========

Some time ago a mother punished her 5 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 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. 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.
