Some Questions Are Better Unanswered

There is a Hallmark show, When Calls The Heart, I started watching in Seattle that I pretty much only got into because my girl friends did, but I stayed with it because I liked it and I could watch it in front of my Wee One without worrying about what she saw or heard.

There is an actor on that show, Daniel Lissing, who, in 2015, was awarded a crap ton of awards for a short film he helped create called The Answers. In it, his character had died and was able to ask questions about his life, get answers to mysteries that had never been solved. Its a great little film and packs a lot into seven minutes, so I highly recommend you watch it.

I’ve thought about it in the past two years now and again, and I thought of it last week while at the park with Wee One.

I started to think about questions I might ask after I die, and I will have a lot about my real dad. Although, he’ll most likely be dead already as well, and maybe I can see him in the afterlife?

But say I don’t.

Did he love me? Why did he leave me? Why didn’t he want me? Does he know about WO? What did he tell his (my) family, like my grandfather or aunt an uncle? Why did he lie about me? How did he feel when I was in the coma?

As I thought about this, it occurred to me: I don’t know if I want to know the answers. What he he says no? He didn’t love me? I don’t think I want to know. Maybe some things are best left alone.

But check out the film; it’s really good. Also, do you think they thought to call it “Seven Minutes In Heaven?” Heh.
