My Shawshank Redemption
In dark times, I find great comfort in one of my all time favorite movies, The Shawshank Redemption. It reminds me to hope for better, and know in time whatever is will change; This too shall pass. But in the last week or so, I've had my own version of Shawshank redemption. I have not carved through a wall with a rock pick, but I have had friendship step up and do the seemingly impossible for me. Sometimes it just takes that little trickle of hope to make the river flow again and fill the resovoir. You know who you are, and you know how much you mean to me. It may never be in the form of a beautifully crafted movie, but what a gift we have shared in this life, this friendship.
