I realise that in this high-paced maddening society, relationships between loved ones can often be strained as a result of poor communication and neglect due to the rapid passage of time, join me as we reaffirm the promises to our loved ones.

1) Please have patience when dealing with me.

2) Place your trust in me. Through good and bad times, I will always be by your side.

3) Never forget that I have a heart too… just like you.

4) Whenever I don’t listen to what you say, always remember that there is a reason.

5) Talk to me. I may not understand all your words but I understand your voice when it speaks to me.

6) Let’s not fight. Remember that I could hurt you but have chosen never to do so.

7) Even when I grow in age (and probably grow slow or weak), please be kind to me.

8) My life may not last as long as yours. Please make every second we spend together count.

9) You may have other friends, other activities. Please remember that for me, there’s only you.

10) When I leave this world, promise me you’ll be by my side. Remember all the times we shared and remember always that I love you.

Above promises are extracted from the Japanese flim "Ten promises to my dog": the most touching movie I have ever seen. Though the movie touches on the promises made by the owner to her pet dog, the message is universal: Respect, Cherish and Love your loved ones today!
