When this movie was shown in 2002, the husband and I watch it but despite the good reviews about it I did not find it appealing. The songs that Mandy Moore sang for this movie were always played on the radio and everytime I hear the songs, I tried to switch the radio off. Weird? You bet.
At the time we watched the movie I was already experiencing some abnormalities in my body and my brain. The truth is I watched the movie but the only thing I remembered was the girl dying. And it frightens me that I wanted to forget about the movie. lol. That’s also the reason I never wanted to hear the songs.
But now that I am recovered I saw it online. And I was so touched by it that I have to rewatched it for a couple of times. The movie reminds me of the love my husband (then boyfriend) showered me when I was on my sickest and ugliest self. I realized that I might be hard for me to cope up with my LUPUS but it is also hard on him seeing me suffer. And I feel blessed. Blessed because now the Lord gave me the opportunity to be normal again. And having Anevay as a bonus.
I cannot forget this lines from the movie :
Landon : I’m sorry she didn’t get her miracle. (pertaining to Jaimie) Jaimie’s Father : She did. It was you.
Now, a walk to remember has become one of my favorite movie of all time.
