I'm on sick leave today. But I won't talk about that.
I just finished watching "P.S. I Love You". No, not the Sharon-Gabby movie. (Although I've seen that one also.) This is the one with Hillary Swank. I got interested when Daphne blogged about it.
Last Friday night naman I had a date with Eugene and we saw "Nights in Rodanthe". Yeah it has been a cheesy week. Haha!
I liked both movies. The two movies were very romantic and funny in a witty way although both stories revolved on death of someone you're romantically involved with. For someone getting married in a few months, it scares me a lot. It's not that I'm backing out or something. It just made me think if it's all worth it. You'll be spending most of your life with this person. You'll build memories that will not be perfect if built with someone else. But eventually it's inevitable that you will lose him.
So is it worth it?
I'm sure it is. I'm positive that it will be. =)
I'm not good at making movie reviews so I'll just post some lines from both movies. 'Hope it will convince you to see it.
P.S. I Love You
Dear Holly, I don't have much time. I don't mean literally, I mean you're out buying ice cream and you'll be home soon. But I have a feeling this is the last letter, because there is only one thing left to tell you. It isn't to go down memory lane or make you buy a lamp, you can take care of yourself without any help from me. It's to tell you how much you move me, how you changed me. You made me a man, by loving me Holly. And for that, I am eternally grateful... literally. If you can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you're sad, or unsure, or you lose complete faith, that you'll try to see yourself through my eyes. Thank you for the honor of being my wife. I'm a man with no regrets. How lucky am I. You made my life, Holly. But I'm just one chapter in yours. There'll be more. I promise. So here it comes, the big one. Don't be afraid to fall in love again. Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends. P.S. I will always love you -- Gerry Kennedy
You know the worst thing for a parent... second after losing a child? Watching your child head for the same life you had. You can't stop it. It's a terrible, helpless feeling. Makes you angry all the time. And I've been angry. For a very long time. I'm exhausted. -- Patricia
We're so arrogant, aren't we? So afraid of age, we do everything we can to prevent it. We don't realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone. Someone who doesn't drive you to commit murder or doesn't humiliate you beyond repair. -- Daniel Connelly
Holly Kennedy: I don't want to make any mistakes.
Gerry Kennedy: Then you're in the wrong species, love. Be a duck.
Daniel Connelly: What do women want?
Holly Kennedy: [whispering] We have no idea what we want.
Nights in Rodanthe
Saying good-bye to you today is the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do, and when I get back, I can honestly swear that I’ll never do it again. I love you now for what we’ve already shared and I love now in anticipation for all that’s to come. You are the best thing that ever happened to me. I miss you already, but I’m sure in my heart that you’ll be with me always. In the past few days I spent with you, you became my dream.
When I sleep, I dream of you and when I wake, I long to hold you in my arms. If anything, our time apart has only made me more certain that I want to spend my nights by your side, and my days with your heart.
