A Movie to See

Chad recorded a movie on cable the other night "The Secret Life of Bees"... it has an incredible cast (Dakota Fanning, Jenifer Hudson, Queen Latifa & Alicia Keys). Chad has had a fascination with bees and beekeeping, so it caught his attention. Then he read what it was about & thought it was definately a "Jen pick"... ~ he was right! It is a beautiful story about mothers and daughters.

I liked it so much that I have decided to add a portion of it to my blog by sharing the last words in the movie as written by the young Lily at the end of the movie:

"I guess I have forgiven myself, although sometimes in the night my dreams will take me back to sadness, so I have to wake up and forgive myself again. But Mary is always there. You feel her at unexpected moments. She will suddenly rise, and when she does, she does not go up into the sky, but further inside of me."

You have to watch it to understand the words above. I give it 5 stars in a feel good movie. I was startled to hear the above words being said... I felt like someone was reading something from my heart. I had to rewind and copy it word for word so I could keep it and share it with you.....

I HAVE to go rent this today...And, yes, Mary offered 100% pure unconditional love. I know exactly what you are talking about. We were so blessed to have walked this earth with Mary. And, now we have an even greater opportunity of spending eternity in Heaven with her.

Love you!
