Christmas - The Gift of Love
A short story was told about a man who works very hard to put food on his table. He has a five year old daughter who was very beautiful and heart warming. Just two days to Christmas she noticed her father was unhappy owing to the fact that his pocket was very lean. She decided to give his dad a surprise package in her little known way by using up the expensive gold wrap which his dad had the intention to sell to raise money. Unfortunately on the Eve of Christmas when he got a buyer to buy his gold wrap, he saw that the child had used all of the expensive gold paper to decorate a box she had put under a faded Christmas tree. He became very upset about this and had to punish the child for her wrong deed.
However, the next morning the little girl, filled with the excitement of the season even though they had not much to celebrate, brought this gift box to her father and said; ”This is for you! Daddy I want you to be happy!”As he opened the box, he felt embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, now regretting how he had punished her. But when he opened the beautifully wrapped box, he found it was empty and again his flared. ”You don´t give an empty present to somebody, there ought to be some package inside, however little.”he said to the young child. The little girl looked up at him with sad tears rolling from her eyes and whispered; ”Daddy, it´s not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was all full.” Immediately the father was crushed by these words. He fell on his knees and put his arms around his precious little girl and asked her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.
An accident took the life of the child only a short time later. It is told that the father kept this little gold box by his bed for all the years of his life. Whenever he was discouraged or faced difficult problems, he would open the box, take out an imaginary kiss, and remember the love of this beautiful child who had put it there.
In a very real sense, each of us has been given an invisible golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
Lesson of Story: Christmas is more of love sharing and not necessarily material things. Enjoy this Christmas but more importantly put smilen on the faces of the needy – That´s what the seasons is all about – LOVE.
