My late mother watched her “50 First Dates” DVD almost every day.
She missed her home Hawaii.
But, there was more.
I asked her once why she watched it over and over.
She told me, “I watch it, ’cause it brings me hope for you. Drew had a mental illness, and Adam loved her anyway and helped her have a wonderful life. You are going to have that too.”
Then, one of my painful struggles was with my Bipolar Disorder. I didn’t believe I would find someone who would see beyond my severe mental complexities and really see me let alone love me.
She passed away in the summer of 2006.
I met my loves in 2011 and 2018.
I am so sorry she didn’t meet them.
But, I plan to have my friend play a song from the soundtrack… Izzy’s “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” at the wedding.
