So, here's the thing; I keep most of my posts pretty impersonal,
but there is a lot of stuff going on in my life right now,
and I just feel like I could use some comfort.
I lost my best friend to cancer a couple of years ago.
I don't talk about it much, I've even stopped thinking about it too often.
Then yesterday, her dad came in to my store. I haven't seen him for years.
We hugged, talked a bit awkwardly, then he bought a candle and left.
It reminded me of how much I have left behind,
of how much I have had to leave behind, to start over.
So tonight, I'm thinking about comfort. In movies, to be precise.
These are my top 3 comfort movies (in no particular order),
and they are all kind of bitter sweet.
They deal with loss, differences, misunderstandings and forced change
- but also with love, realizations and that (illusive) sense of rest, of peace at last.
What is your comfort movie? If you're home alone a particularly cold
and maybe - lonely - night (with some ice cream or chips at hand),
what movie would you like to put on?
