Shug: More than anything God love admiration.
Celie: You saying God is vain?
Shug: No, not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it.
Celie: You saying it just wanna be loved like it say in the bible?
Shug: Yeah, Celie. Everything wanna be loved.
The dialog above is from my all time favorite movie "The Color Purple" and this is one of my favorite scene's. I turn to this movie whenever I am depressed or down. It always makes me feel better. And as you can guess, I have seen it many times.
People ask me, "How can such a depressing movie make you feel better?"
I get so caught up with the story that I forget about my own problems and sadness. When the story ends on such an uplifting note, I too am lifted out of my funk.
Why haven't I watched it yet? I dunno. I don't think I will need to this time.
Every morning when I leave for work I walk like a zombie from my back door to my car. Never noticing much along the way. On Friday I noticed something I had not noticed before.
He is right.
God, forgive me.
I see it now.
