Thoughts have been running through my mind today on what to post. Thinking about the weather, we were getting sleet earlier mixed with a little snow. Winter has come! The temps were Freezing the past couple days and very windy. Thankful for a warm house!
Thinking about how I need new friends….. Just KIDDING! 🙂 I just need some friends that can do a better job at writing poetry. A better job then 2 other certain friends If you are confused you will have to see my post from yesterday. Friday’s 6 word story! See the comment section to find the poem.
My dear hubby informed me that he guesses I haven’t learned how to appreciate the art of fine poetry. Yes, that made me laugh! This coming from a guy who really doesn’t read poetry! Though somehow he suddenly became an expert yesterday in what “Fine Poetry” is. At least in his mind 🙂
Just be watching my blog. You never know when you might see a creative response to the poem that was posted by my” dear” friends.
The main thing that has been on my mind is the movie that my husband and I saw last night. Collateral Beauty. I don’t usually blog about movies for I know everyone has such different taste but this one just grabbed my heart and so I wanted to share. I really don’t want to say too much of what it is about, for I don’t want to ruin it. It is a drama and be sure to have tissues handy!
It is a movie about time, love and death and how the 3 collide. Here are some quotes from it. “We are here to connect. Love, time and death. Now these three things connect every human being on earth. We long for love, we wish we had more time, and we fear death.”
“I felt you every day when she laughed, and you broke my heart.”
“I was there in her laugh, but I am also here now in your pain.”
“I’m time, I am a gift and you are wasting it!”
Did I spark your curiosity? If the movie is showing near you, go see it, I really don’t think you will regret it. If you do go see it or you saw it already, let me know what you thought!
I am a avid reader, LOVE books! I love them but I don’t talk about them much on here either for once again we all have our different tastes. A friend dared me to read a book, saying I wouldn’t be able to put it down once I started. He was right. I only put it down because my eyes were getting blurry from needing sleep. I then was up much earlier then I usually am up on a Saturday morning so that I could finish the book! It was worth it.
I don’t want to say too much about the book , it will move you. At least it did me. It drew me in and I felt the heart of the characters in the book. Yes, you should keep a box of tissues handy for this book to. My eyes got a work out this week-end!
The book is called So b it. by Sarah Weeks. It follows the journey of a young girl who lives with her mentally disabled Mom and a dear neighbor who helps to take care of them. Heidi, the young girl is on a search for who she really is. She has questions she longs to be answered, but she finds that sometimes not all questions can be answered.
The book grabbed my attention from the first couple lines. Heidi talked about what color she would name the crayon if Truth was a crayon. I promise you that you won’t guess.
So as the winter winds blow and you need a good book or movie to lose yourself in for awhile, look these 2 up. Also feel free to suggest some of your favorites in the comments below. I am always looking for new books to read.
