Gold Wrapping Paper

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 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

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 and GOD. There is no more precious possession anyone
could  hold.  
You now have two choices:
  1. Pass this on to your friends, or

  2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.

As you can see, I took choice No. 1.  Friends are like angels who lift
us to our feet, when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.  If
you receive this more than once in return just know that your friends
have also thought of you.
