P.S. I loved this movie

Last night I dragged Honey to see P.S. I Love You, and I absolutely loved it. Honey, of course, thought it sucked. He's not one for chic flicks, although he did say that once we own it and he's seen it 4 times, maybe he'll grow to like it. At least that's something!

I must have cried about 8 different times during this movie, and I know I wasn't alone because I could hear sniffling coming from all sides. I'm sorry, but if you are in a relationship, or more specifically, are married to the love of your life, and you don't cry during this movie, you're just dead inside.

This movie made me really think about my marriage, and how it doesn't occur to me that it could be cut short. I married Honey with the belief that we will grow old together, and I never once considered the possibility that he could die young. If I allowed myself to think about such things, I probably never would have married him because the thought of losing him would hurt way too much.

P.S. brought up a whole mess of emotions that I never even knew existed. I could empathize with Hilary Swank's character more than any other character I've watched in years. I could feel in my heart what it would feel like to be a widow at age 30, and it sucked. When you marry the man you love, that's not supposed to happen, you know? How do you ever get over that? How do you get out of bed in the morning? Go to work? Move on? Smile? Allow yourself to fall in love again? I just can't imagine how I'd ever get over losing Honey.

So, go watch this movie. Cry, laugh, give your husband a big hug, and treat your marriage as if every day could be its last.

I want to go see this too. Mike will go willingly and enjoy it with me. Then I'll willingly go to one of his movies and enjoy it too even though it'll be so out of my league. The things we do for love!
