I sent this to my Aunt,she lost her husband 12 years ago, she sent it

yesterday, she said it gave much confort, and she it would confort me as well.



I have in my hands two boxes which God gave me to hold.

He Said, Put all your sorrow in the black, and all your joy in the gold.

I heeded his word, and in the two boxes both the joys and sorrows I store. 

 But though the gold became heaver each day, The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black I wanted to find out why

And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole.

 Which my sorrows had fallen out by. I showed the hole to God, and mused aloud,

 He smiled a gentle smile and said, "My child, they're here with me."

I asked, "God why give me the boxes, Why the gold, and the black with the hole?" 

"My child, The gold is for you to count your blessings, and the black is to let go."
