The Deal February 27, 2011

I love it when film and real life marry to illustrate a beautiful truth.

In the film The Kids Are Alright, Julianne Moore’s character says in her brilliant monologue to her family after her affair is discovered…”Here’s the deal, marriage is hard.”  Then tonight watching Where The Wild Things Are one of the Wild Thing’s characters, I think KW, says…something similar that makes me smile, basically, Here’s the deal…”Being a family is hard.”

But in the truth of these two lines that bring tears to my eyes, the hard part disappears and I clearly see the beauty can’t exist without the hard part. And that’s okay.  It’s part of the deal.
