नमस्कार मायबोलीकर !
नुकताच एक छोटासा लेख मला एका मित्राने ईमेल केला.
वाचुन खूपच हळवा झालो, आणी हे जसेच्या तसे ईथे पेस्ट करुन आपणा सर्वांबरोबर वाटुन घ्यावेसे वाटले.
माझे मराठी काही एव्हढे चांगले नाही असे गेल्या काही दिवसांपासुन कळुन आल्याने भाषांतर केल्याविनाच तसेच ईथे देतो आहे. ( अॅडमिन . . . .क्षमस्व ).
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 over reaction, 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 said, that the man kept that gold box by his bed for years even after daughter's maariage and whenever he felt alone or 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 and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
I'm touched . . . . Belated Happy Fathers' Day to all.
