…is not about how much you have, but how much you give.
These are the truly magnificent words spoken in the following Gift – Singapore Drama Short Film by Daniel Yam.
It depicts the heartbreaking but beautiful tale of a young boy who never appreciated how truly wonderful his father was until it was too late.
It carries a strong underlying message across to those watching that not everything is always as it seems and it is also a gentle reminder to all of us to appreciate our parents while we still have them. One day they will be gone and then it’ll be too late to tell them how you feel.
So, give your parents a call and tell them that you love them. Show up at their doorstep and give them a big hug. Listen to your parents when they try to say something and always remember that not everything is always as it seems.
There is a reason for everything and if you really, truly want to understand you’ll need to listen, watch and dig deep to find it. You might be surprised by what you find.
