The man was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her, stating, "Don't you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside?
The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They're all for you, Daddy."
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.
Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child. It is also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many 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 one of us, as human-beings have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses… from our children, family members, friends, and Most of all – from Allah. There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this.
This reminds you not to take things for granted. Please try not to focus on what you do not have… but rather appreciate all the sweet kisses in your life.
