Really powerful journaling here. It's so wonderful that you can put pen to paper and release these feelings in writing.

Angela, thanks for sharing your heart. And you did one of the best things you could...working out your grief in your way! I have worked with Hospice in bereavement and taken classes on grief and journaling can be so powerful...adding the art to it just makes it even better! I loved your poem and I am thinking/praying for you tonight! You are not alone in having a movie trigger such strong feelings. That is called a grief burst and it can happen for years after losing someone you loved. It happened to me when watching the baseball movie where the guy built a baseball field in his corn field...Field of Dreams. I lost my father when I was only 3 and when the main character had a chance to talk to his dad, I just started balling right there in the theatre! I went home and journaled (just writing then). I actually wrote a letter to my dad which a few years later I had the chance to read to him at his grave. Very powerful! Love ya honey!!
