The Empty Box – Very Emotional Story

The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried, “Oh, Daddy, it’s not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They’re all for you, Daddy.”
The father was crushed.
He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.
Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child.
It is also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many 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 one of us, as humans beings, have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses… from our children, family members and friends.
There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this.

    very very emotional story , God gave us many valued gifts , like sons, daughters, father , mother , grand mother , grand father , health , friends , yes happiness with all those or with some of those but we have to find these happiness in every where and feel them these happiness.

    Specially love between father is very very different and this cannot be described in words. I love my daughter very much.

    both the stories were emotional, the only advise that I can give here to parents is to be more patient with their beloved children and hold their timper.
    use the 5 w’s to get the answer before act.

    Read this story a couple of year back and I couldn’t help the flow of tears cos it was so touching.

    Now reading it again today is bringing back those tears I was trying to hold back.
    It only help to remind us of the beauty that is inherent in all of us human and especially the kids all around us.

    Good one Sara!!!

    why do stories like that have the nice guy die at the end

    much like movies (all have the same ending)

    I moved toward my car to leave to office, I frenzied by
    seeing my 18 months old son holding a harsh (tire cleaning) brush and rubbing it
    on my car, that part of the body was totally scratched. I screamed on him slapped
    him on his face, he cried, opened his small lips and said “father, you are
    leaving to office and your car is dirty, I am cleaning your car.” Oh My God, what
    a big mistake I made, I hugged him, thanked him and gave him a piece of cloth
    and told him “son, let’s clean it together with this cloths”. I never forget
    that moment, I LOVE YOU MY SON.
