Just when I despaired that there were no good movies out there to watch, our Parks and Recreation Department ran their first in a series of movies tonight. Hubby is on the committee so he encouraged me and our neighbor to come down for the film. The movie was a British movie called “Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont“. It starred Joan Plowwright as a woman in her last years of life. She was a master bringing Mrs Palfrey to life. You come to love her almost as soon as she is on the screen.
I sat there watching the movie and I felt the love and longing that this woman felt for her husband. I could see in my life how I love my own husband, and like Mrs Palfrey, how no one could ever take the place of my beloved.
The movie is a gentle reminder to live life to the fullest, to love those we have, deeply and to never take for granted those people in our life that make us feel loved, and whom we love.
If you have not seen it, take a trip to the video store, or rent it from Netflix. It is worth the time you will spend watching this beautiful story unfold. You will truly be enriched!
