My Sister's Keeper

"You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not”

I saw this movie today and cried through half of it. It was a beautiful movie about a family's love and struggles with a sick child. Anna, the sister of Kate who is sick with leukemia is bound by love to help her sister. The whole family is effected, but the love that they have for each other prevails. Their bond is a beautiful example of unconditional LOVE!

I related with what Anna said at the end of the movie about her sister Kate:

"Once upon a time, I thought I was put on this earth to save my sister. In the end, I couldn't do it. I realize now, that wasn't the point. The point was, I had a sister. She was fantastic! One day I'm sure I'll see her again. But until then, my relationship continues..... "

I bet that was quite a tear-jerker! Have you read the book? I like all her books.

The quote at the end gives me chills. I needed to see that... thanks, Jeni!
