Most Romantic Moment #12
Once Upon a Christmas Miracle
So back in December when I was watching a Christmas Film every day, this was suggested by Martha.leith. I enjoyed it, especially one moment, that I’m sharing with you today.
This film is based on a true story. Heather is a nursing student who is tired all the time and not feeling well.
At first she thinks that she is overworked, but then she realizes that something is not right. She goes to the doctor and discovers that she only has a few months to live, unless she can find a living donor for a transplant. As one who has been studying medicine, Heather knows the chances of her getting a transplant and her body accepting it is very slim. Instead she decides to use the rest of her time to make this the best Christmas ever.
Chris, a recently returned marine, hears about Heather and even though she is a stranger, he gets tested and is a match! The two begin to get to know each other and Heather starts to fall for Chris; but does she REALLY love him or does she just feel grateful for what he has done? And will they survive the surgery, or will it be a last Christmas for one of them?
Most Romantic Moment #12: You Don’t Owe Me Anything
This moment comes about 2/3 of the way through the film. Heather has been really chill through the movie-everyone else is sad, worried, freaking out-but Heather has just been enjoying the holidays, no big deal. But the day of the hospital, Heather is prepped and it hits her. She is asking this guy to go under surgery and give a part of himself. He could die, he could never recover, her body could reject it and they would have had him open for nothing. How can she do this?
She can’t do this, she can’t ask this of him, she doesn’t want to do it anymore, but then Chris calm her down. Heather tells him she doesn’t know what she could do to thank him, and he tells her “you owe me absolutely nothing“-he’s freely giving it to her.
Every time I see it, that scene makes my heart melt!
