27.jpg
Once upon a time, a man punished his 5-year-old daughter for using up the family's only roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight, and he became even more upset when on Christmas Eve. He saw that the child had pasted the gold paper so as to decorate a shoebox to put under the Christmas tree.

从前,一位父亲惩罚了自己5岁的女儿,因为她用光了家里仅有的一卷昂贵的金色包装纸。家里很拮据,在圣诞前夜来临时,父亲变得更加心烦意乱。他看到女儿用金色包装纸装饰鞋盒,放在圣诞树下。

Nevertheless, the next morning the little girl, filled with excitement, brought the gift box to her father and said, "This is for you,Daddy!"

然而,圣诞节的早上,小女孩满脸兴奋地把这个礼盒呈到了父亲面前说:“爸爸,这个送给你!”

As he opened the box, the father was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction.

当父亲打开礼盒时,他为自己先前的过度反应而局促不安。

But when he opened it, he found it was empty and again his anger flared. "Don't you know, young lady," he said harshly, "when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package!"

但是当他打开盒子后,发现里面是空的,他的怒火再次爆发了。“你不知道吗,小丫头,”他严厉地说,“当你送人礼物时。包装盒里面应当是有东西的!”

The little girl looked up at him with tears rolling from her eyes and said: "Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was all full."

小女孩抬头看着父亲,泪水在她的眼眶中打转:“爸爸,它不是空的。我在这里面装满了我的吻。”

The father was crushed. He fell on his knees and put his arms around his precious little girl. He begged her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.

男人顿时被击垮了。他双膝跪地,双臂缭绕着自己珍爱的小女孩,祈求她原谅他不必要的怒火。

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later. It is told that the father kept that little gold box by his bed for all the years of his life. Whenever he was discouraged or faced difficult problems he would open the box, take out an imaginary kiss, and remember the love of this beautiful child who had put it there.

之后不久,一场事故夺走了小女孩的生命。据说,那位父亲一直将那个小金盒子放在他的床头,陪伴他度过余生。无论何时他感到气馁或者遇到棘手的问题时,他就会打开礼盒,取出一个假想的吻,想着用吻装满这个盒子的美丽的女儿的爱。

In a very real sense, each of us as human beings have been given an invisible golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

从一个非常真实的意义上说,我们每个人都被赠予一个无形的金色礼盒,里面装满了来自子女、家人、朋友及上帝无条件的爱与吻。人生所能拥有的最可贵的礼物莫过于此了。
