I am not really an animal movie person. Not because I don't love animals, I just don't love animals the way other people do. That is why I was pleasantly suprised when I saw the movie Marley and Me. Although Marley was a big part of the movie, I wouldn't say the movie was about him. I really appreciated the realistic life moments they captured and could relate to a lot of what Jennifer Aniston's character went through. I had a period of time after my first son was born where I was so sleep deprived, and so poor, and so gross from baby goo that I felt I had no idea who I was. But just like Aniston's character I knew I had made a choice, and I didn't regret that choice. As tired as I was I still loved my Husband and my baby boy, and I knew the day would come when I would feel stronger and happier again.
I think in life no matter who your partner is, or what children you are blessed with we will all struggle. However if we stick with it and stick with the people we have committed ourselves to we can find unconditional love and happiness. To me that is more than worth it.
