Each year on a Christmas Eve, Daddy K and I have a tradition of watching movies. This year, we watched a movie called P.S. I love you. I know it's not a Christmas related film but we haven't seen that movie yet so we watched it nevertheless. It's a drama movie based on a book by Cecilia Ahern. The movie is basically about how the newly widowed Holly Kennedy received letters from her late husband Gerry. She received the first one in a form of a cake on her 30th birthday and a tape recording from Gerry telling her to "celebrate herself". Weeks and months flowed by and more letter from Gerry were delivered, all were about living on and then sending her to a new adventure and each letter were signed with P.S. I love you.
It's a sad yet very heart-warming story. Imagine creating something like that for your love one. It's like you're reassuring them that you still love them even if you're no longer around. It's like making a will, but instead of monetary values, you are imparting them your emotional values, your lasting legacy. With technology today, personal videos can be seen left and right. It makes it easy for us make a video will of our own and send it to our loved ones. It makes it more personal and more touching to see the person you love leave a message to you. It may bring tears to their eyes but it's a bittersweet feeling. And you'll know that they will always be reminded of how important they are, even without you by their side to tell them so.
Since it's Christmas time, why don't we start making our own emotional legacy today and let our loved ones know how important they are to us.
