We watched the movie The Starling tonight which is about a couple dealing with the death of their daughter. It stars Melissa McCarthy whom I really like. She seems like someoneI could be friends with in real life.
The movie was good, poignant. Nothing too dramatic or too sad. While it centers around the loss of their child, it’s really about the loss of their connection as a couple. It was a reminder of how quickly the ties that bind can unravel during times of sorrow and stress.
I’m thankful today that with all we’ve dealt with in the past year, Patrick and I have held it together pretty well. We have annoyed each other at times, of course. But we’ve held each other up.
