A Little Bit of Heaven made me cry a lot!! However, it was a GREAT movie!!! It made me cry a lot because it reminded me so much of the last year of my mom’s life dealing with cancer. My mom will be gone two years on the 19th, and I just had to sell my dog that I got a month after she passed away. Animals have a way being solid therapy for me. I have an issue with co-dependency, but instead of getting dependent of other people I get that way towards animals.
I could so relate to this movie 10x’s over. My mom wanted a life of quality and not quantity. She also was looking for the one great love. My mom ended up dating a guy who was addicted to alcohol in the end, and when he was sober he was an amazing man (as many people who suffer with addictions are!!) She didn’t get married again because she knew her time was limited. My mom must have known exactly when she was passing because she made darn certain I didn’t arrive to her house until a few minutes after she passed away. I haven’t had a solid cry over her passing until tonight. It’s so odd that it’s taken me almost two years to break down and truly sob over her. We all grieve in our own ways.
How has cancer changed your life?
