Mindset Monday - When The Child Gifts....

Mindset Monday - When The Child Gifts....

This remains one of my all time favorite gifting stories as it awakens you to being mindful when getting a gift from child.   What does a child REALLY have to give you?  A stone, flower, picture, hug..  but it is the child's pure and mindful nature, along with the innocent words  that makes this one of the most treasured life experiences....Take a moment and notice..

 

 

"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.

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."
