If your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches...

Do you have a "sick movie"...a go-to comfort film that calls your name when you're sick in bed, trying to sip Gatorade while tissues are shoved up your nostrils?

Mine is Beaches. I grew up watching this movie, and I totally love the two main characters, Hillary Whitney and CC Bloom. As a kid, I was always torn over which one I liked better. Hillary (Barbara Hershey) was so pretty and classy, but CC (Bette Midler) was loud and fun and dang, could she sing. (I still have the soundtrack...on cassette.) This unlikely pair formed a lifelong friendship that started and ended on the beach.

I actually don't even remember the last time I watched this movie while I was healthy. Maybe I wouldn't even like it. (Kidding.) Yep...Beaches...definitely my favorite sick movie. What's yours?
