A Movie That Made Me Cry...


I recently watched the movie Marley and Me. Have you watched it?

It was one of the movies which made me cry a bucket of tears!
Probably, its because several things in the movie connected with me...
We used to have a dog. His name was Jabez. He was a basset hound. He was our first baby. I was so sad when we had to give him away because I was pregnant and couldnt care for him anymore. We had to move back to my mom's place for a while and no one can care for him... :(
Marley just made me laugh as he reminded me so much of how Jabez used to be and Marley made me cry too...

Just to show you, here is a picture of Jabez..
Another is when Jen, the wife of the lead character, became a Stay At Home Mom. I think they were able to portray some aspects of being a Stay At Home Mom pretty well.

I also liked how John, the lead character, really loved his family and treated Marley as part of the family.

It was a real tearjerker! Though it made me cry...
I definitely think that its a great movie to watch!

Yup, bought the DVD and watched it. It was really sad to see Marley go, but on the bright side, Marley changed the lives of the Grogans.

Not ready for tear jerkers....sometimes they make me too sad, and I've had enough emotional ups and downs in the past year with my dad's illness and death.

Glad that you got through the movie, allbeit with lots of used tissues, ;)

We had to put a dog to sleep due to a fatal illness ten years ago this month, and that's still painful in some ways.

I haven't seen this movie yet. My boys went to see. They both said it was very good but they also said I would be in tears at the end.
