    I got this in an email and had to share....... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif



    I received this from a friend who
    >>>had a choice to make. It said that I had a choice to make too. I've
    >>>chosen. Now it's your turn to choose. The story goes that 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 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
    >>>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 found the box was empty. She 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 her with 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
    >>>to forgive her for her unnecessary 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 and God. There is no more precious possession anyone
    >>>could hold. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
