The Preacher's Wife

This MOTD is about the first time I cried in a movie.

I was about 7 years old and with my mom and sister at the Kenwood Mall’s movie theater (which now has been turned into an H&M-much better use of space, if you ask me).  We were seeing The Preacher’s Wife which is with Denzel Washington and Whitney Houston. It’s a Christmas movie where an angel is sent to a family over the season. It’s one of my favorites and a must-see over the Christmas season.

Anyway, there’s a part where the little boy’s best friend has to go to a foster home (or something like that) and the boy gives his friend all of his chocolate candy bars. I started sobbing right there in the movie theater. Not only was I touched that this boy would give his best friend all of his chocolate, I also thought about having to say bye to my friends. I don’t know. It was just a sad part. It was the first time I cried in a movie and I’ve cried in that same part each time since. But I don’t know if I cry now because it’s sad or just because it’s practically tradition.
