A Box of Kisses

A Box of Kisses! Click to read article
The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, “This is for you, Daddy.” He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty.

He yelled at her, “Don’t you know that when you give someone a present, there’s supposed to be something inside it?”

The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, “Oh, Daddy, it is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy.”

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.

It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for 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 of us as humans have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, friends, family, angels, ancestors, and The Great Creator. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

Animals are Love

Pets are our close companions because they provide love, comfort, safety, warmth, happiness, levity, wonder, laughter, and friendship. Pets teach us to have more patience with life and to enjoy the simple things.

I believe all the animals I have had in my life are truly spiritual beings, and it’s my opinion they have been put in my life for a reason: to help me be a better person in the here and now and to teach me things that will lead me to a joyous hereafter.

Here are some quotations about animals and please share your own thoughts about these wonderful marvelous creatures that share our lives.

A house is not a home without a pet.

Animals are such agreeable friends–they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
- George Eliot

Love the animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled.
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes!
- Theophile Gautier

If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.
- James Herriot

My most treasured possessions are not things; they are only things, my friends, family and animals are what counts.
- Olivia Newton-John

The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude.
- Robert Brault

The best thing about animals is that they don’t talk much.
- Thornton Wilder

All of the animals except for man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it.
- Samuel Butler
