Michael Sellers found out that he had cancer in 2013. He knew that he had only several months and he did not know what to do and how to confess to his wife and children. After a while, a great idea came to his mind.
He decided to send flowers with a card to his daughter Bailey at her every birthday after his death. She was the smallest child in his family. She should get them until she became twenty-one. In his letter he wrote that he asked her not to cry for him, because he was in the better world.
He shared his thoughts with his wife and she supported him and helped him to arrange everything. Also, Michael had two other daughters. They were older than Bailey, so he prepared other presents for them: two beautiful embroidered handkerchiefs for their bridal bouquets.
What do you think about his deed? Unfortunately, too many people have no opportunity to bid farewell to their family, relatives and friends. However, Michael had time to create something special and to stay in his family’s memory for many years.
Our life is too short. We never know what can happen the next day. Use your time to say the words that you have never said before to your close people. Do not hesitate to say I’m sorry or I forgive you. Do not forget to say Thank you to people who are always near you.
Every person should leave his legacy. Think about this. Prepare a list of things that you can teach or you can show to your close people. Your family will absolutely love to have memorable things about you. Try to leave something after yourself.
There is an interesting movie on this topic- P.S. I Love You. It is based on a famous book by Cecelia Ahern. A man found out that he would die in some months and prepared something unusual and very special for his beloved wife.
He wrote a lot of letters that would come to his wife after his death. He prepared different interesting activities for her, especially those that she never managed to try. He even planned a trip to his homeland and to the places where they had met each other. This is a great movie about love.
