Did you see the movie Collateral Beauty? You must.
I saw it over Christmas break, and I loved it. Not everyone did, but if you believe in miracles and pain, beauty and sorrow, it is a movie worth seeing.
Now that I've told you to see it, I'm afraid I'm going to ruin it with a spoiler. So...to explain my joyful moment, or to let you go and figure it out for yourselves? That is the question.
I'll just say I was given a chance at a clean slate. Sometimes being strangers is the only way to move forward, and I am hopeful that today is the beginning of moving forward.
ps. I still love my writers group. They're amazing.
