Back with A Box of Kisses

Today has been an eventful day in my life. So eventful that I had to give up my break and return to what I love doing most. Talking and blogging. Today, various events have occured in various places at various time. But they only had one impact on me. They helped me realise a lot and have helped me grow. Life is a learning lesson and I have now come to believe that whatever happens, happens for a reason and happens for good. I'm gonna live by it now. Some people die long before their heart stops functioning. I dont want to be one among them. Nothings happens by itself, you need to make it happen. As my manager says, "You are your own driving force".!

The reason why today was kinda special was due to the below story. I had a discussion about it with a friend and it just made me feel really nice.

The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy." He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty.

He yelled at her, "Don't you know that when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside it?"

The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said,"Oh, Daddy, it is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy."

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.

It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for years and whenever he was discouraged, he would 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 humans have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, friends, family and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold. Hold on to it and life will be no less than heaven.

Cheers to that!! :-)
