FILM SPOTLIGHT: Wraith, coming May 8
Wraith (rāth) noun: a ghost or ghostlike image of someone, especially one seen after, or shortly before, their death
Something’s very wrong in the Lukens’ house.
After living uneventfully for years in their historic home, the Lukens family have somehow awakened a ghostly presence. Who is this frightening spirit and why won’t it leave their 14 year-old daughter, Lucy, alone?
Everything changed when Dennis and Katie Lukens discovered they were pregnant again. Expecting in your 40’s is always high-risk and dangerous, so when the Lukens decide all options are on the table – including termination – the unexpected starts to happen. Sinister forces are now conspiring against the family. But is this eerie, wraith-like spirit actually trying to haunt them…or help them?
Wraith is available on all VOD platforms and Blu-ray/DVD May 8th.
In this film, the Lukens question their ability to bring another child into the world. It made me think about whether I could offer some advice to anyone who has ever felt the same.
I have been a parent for nine and a half years now, and I wouldn’t trade a single second of it for anything. No, not every day is perfect. Sometimes your kids are going to get on your last nerve. Sometimes you’ll really need a break before you feel you will have a breakdown. Sometimes you’ll wonder, at the end of a long and stressful day, if you are truly cut out to give your children the parent they deserve.
But the miraculous thing is, God knows when you are feeling like this. That’s when he sends your child to give you a random kiss and an “I love you mom.” It’s when you can make your baby giggle with the silliest word or glance. It’s when you can feel the love passing between you during hugs or snuggles. Being a mother has been the most amazing experience of my life, and although there are days I have to remember, “This too shall pass,” I remember just that. We are only given so much time with our children before we have to send them out into the wide world. Cherish it.
