A Box Full of Kisses

'A Box Full of Kisses' is a short story that I read from an article. It is about a story is write about a father and a 3-year-old daughter story. The daughter was tried to wrap a box with a roll of gold wrapping paper. The father became infuriated when his daughter tried to decorate the box under a Christmas tree. The next morning, his daughter brings the present to him and he was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. His daughter cried and told him that the present is not empty but she had blew kisses into the box just fro her daddy. He was crushed and apologizes to his daughter. Only a short time later, an accident took the life of his daughter. It is also told that her father kept the 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.
As a conclusion, we should not be materialistic and we must care about others feeling. The most important of a present given is not the things inside but is the meaning and the sincerity of the present.
