Beautiful eulogies are written to reflect the positive feelings, thoughts and memories about a departed loved one. A great amount of time and effort is taken to write this declaration of appreciation to express how much the deceased was loved and admired.
At these times, we often wish we had expressed these beautiful sentiments to the person directly while they were still alive to hear them.
With that in mind, we can start to pay tribute to those we love while they are still here, by writing an appreciation letter. In it, we can mention all the specific things we value about our loved ones and give it to them now!
It is tempting to think we have endless time to tell those around us how we feel, but that is not always the case. We don’t want to miss the chance to tell the special people in our life how we truly feel, while we have the opportunity to do so.
Creating a positive handwritten note lets those closest to us know how we love and appreciate them today, and how our life is better because they are in it. Think how it would feel to our recipients, to receive a beautiful message expressing all the positive feelings we have for them.
Verbally expressing our affection is very important too; however, the written word can be saved and read for years to come, when we are not around to voice it anymore.
The main thing is to convey our appreciation. So, if the handwritten method will delay the writing of our appreciation letter than emailing, or texting our thoughts will still have a profound impact on the recipient.
These wonderful acknowledgements let others know the full extent of their importance to us, and remind us how grateful we are for their presence in our lives. This makes writing these letters a transforming experience for all concerned.
It can also be very healing to write words of appreciation to ourselves as well!
Compose a letter of appreciation and let the good feelings flow!
