Life Is Beautiful

Recently watched My Sister’s Keeper. For those who haven’t seen it, I will not spoil it here. But from the previews, it is no secret that the storyline is about a family where one of the children has cancer. First, let me say that I thought all of the actors did a good job.

This movie affected me more than I expected it would have. It could be maybe that I’m just getting older, that I have a family of my own, or perhaps I’ve just gone soft. But regardless of the reason, the result was the same.

I get all worked up when my kids even get hurt or I even think about something tragic with them involved. But I can’t even imagine if any of it was real. I don’t know how I would handle it, but I know other parents do. I just hope I never have to face that situation and truly feel for those that do.
