Precious Possessions...

     A father was very annoyed with his five year old daughter for wasting money on gold wrapping paper. She was wrapping a gift for her father to place under the Christmas Tree. On Christmas eve, when her father unwrapped the gift and opened the box inside, he found that there was nothing inside the box. It was empty. He screamed at her for really wasting the expensive wrapping and for gifting him an empty box. But she very sadly replied that the box wasn't empty and that she blew several kisses into the box especially for her father. Hearing her say this, his heart went out to her and his eyes filled up with tears, he felt hurt and annoyed with himself for shouting at his daughter. All she wanted to show her father was her love and affection for him.

     In the very real sense, each one of us as humans have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends. There are no more precious possessions anyone could hold. So hold on to these precious possessions and never let go. These are those which touch your heart directly, telling you that you are loved and are Special, if not, Very Special to someone always.


  1. Sometimes we fail to see the precious gold container even if it's right in front of us. Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Children are so innocent sometimes that their gifts are always the best ever received :)

  3. @ Balqis & @LiLing :

    The greatest gift that one can give to other is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.

    I can see that love n acceptance from you all
    :-) thank you !

  4. This remind me of a movie A.I (Artificial Intelligent)... It is my favourite movie where it express how a child seek using his unconditional love.. Yeah, unconditional love and acceptance is indeed the best gift and before we can pass it on to anyone, we should first embrace ourselves; our flaws before passing on.. ;)
