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, Mama." The mother was embarrassed by her earlier reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it wa empty. She poke to her daughter in a harsh manner. "Don't you know, young lady, when you gives someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?" She had tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Mama, 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 short time later. And it is told that the mother kept the gold box by her bed for all the years of her life.Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult promblems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love ot the child who had put it in there. In a very real sense, each of us, as human being, 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. Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet, when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly. I hope you realize that we need to appreciate those unseen gifts given to us.

That's true sometimes or rather most of the time we appreciate things which are expensive and branded. We often forget to be thankful for the simple gifts and simple things. Unseen gifts as I may callit are the things that gives true happiness from within.
