Been home sick, trying not to get too depressed, watching old movies… watched “Waiting To Exhale” and I absolutely love the scene where James (Wesley Snipes) sends Bernadine (Angela Bassett) a letter – melts me.
I miss the days where people actually write words down on paper.
Below is the except of that note from James in the movie:
I’ve been thinking about you a lot, Bernie. Every day. All the time. I’m embarrassed to even write that down…but it’s true.
everything I’ve got in me. Every moment. She’s hanging on, fighting to be here for me…and when she sleeps, I cry…over how amazing she is…and how lucky I’ve been to have her in my life. Can I say it?
You’re the only person in this world I ever knew I could tell this to…
and even if this never finds you…and we never speak again…you’ve changed my life.
You know what inspiration is? It’s someone who lets you know life will go on…and something beautiful can be waiting somewhere. Somewhere when you least expect it.
Yes, waiting to exhale…waiting on something beautiful…with grace in my step and hope in my heart…
