My Family Movie Night: Then and Now

When I was still a kid, I remembered having great family movie nights - Mama and Papa sit beside each other, while I, my two older brothers, and my younger sister sit on the floor as we munch on some junk foods and enjoy the movie. Those movie nights were really great, but lasted only for a while because December of 1994, my mom passed away because of ovarian cancer, followed by my sister on December of 1995 due to leukemia. From then on, my family was never the same.

I terribly missed having Mama and my sister around. Losing them was one of the most painful experiences that our family went through. But all of us have already moved on – Papa already have a new family, my eldest brother recently got married, my second brother is living his own life in a city away from ours, and me, of course I also have my own family now. Although the process was not easy, still we all managed to survive.

Now that I have a family of my own, I want to give them only the best. And whenever there’s a chance, I’ll make sure that I spend quality time with them, since hubby is not always home to be with us. Actually I already made plans for us when he comes home on January. And one of those is to spend a great movie night watching All Roads Lead Home The Movie, a perfect family night movie which will be available on DVD beginning 13th of January. I’ve already seen the trailer and since I can very much relate to it, I’m more than excited to see the whole film. But of course, I would love to see it with hubby and my kids around.

If you are also curious as to what movie I’m talking about here, better watch this trailer. I’m sure you’ll be touched by it too.

Your post touched me so I wanted to leave a comment. I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother and sister. You sound like a wonderful mother yourself and in that way, your mom lives on through you.

Blessings to you and your family!
