Today I am thankful for:
Posted in TT #13
Wrecked and broken, tired and weary
Losing the battle, unsure of the plan
Trusting and questioning, being still to listen
Opening eyes to read
Opening heart to heal
Everything's gonna be alright now...

The movie focused on a self centered, emotionally handicapped 30 year old woman. I would have much rather seen more of the life of Julia. Was she who she said she was? Where did this passion for food come from? Did her and Paul really have the passion filled marriage they portrayed on the big screen? And then I realized that while the movie failed to live up to my expectations, isn't that life? And couldn't I just as easily be that 30 something year old woman, too consumed with herself and her own life to not notice the people around me?
The answer is of course yes. Yes, I could set out for some grand cause and only fall short. And I do, daily. I could also crawl into a hole and lose myself in the tunnel. I won't. I couldn't. I have four Things that do rely on me for cooking and laundry if nothing else. Oh that and back scratching and hugs before bed too.
There was no relationship outside of herself for Julie. Poor her, she was/is missing out. Of course this is just my opinion and while I am not a paid movie critic I am an entitled to that, am I not?

And then we watched the snow. It was really coming down. Although once it hit it turned icy and slushy and not any good for sledding. That didn't stop the Things from playing in it though. Polo even enjoyed the weather, running and walking gingerly on the ice at the park. It didnt' slow him down a bit. Then Thing 2 played at her BFF's house, Thing 3 had her BFF over and Thing 1 and Thing 4 played along. We tried to sled in the old hood but this is what the hill looked like this afternoon...
