Happy Tuesday! I hope your Thanksgiving filled both your tummies and your hearts.
Thanks for joining us! I came up with this week’s challenge:
What is your favorite holiday movie? Book?
I have to admit, it’s a hard choice. I do love the Hallmark movies and watch them every year. And look forward to the new ones. But one movie stands out as my all-time favorite: “Love Actually”.
For me it has everything: humor, pathos, unexpected love and lots of surprises. The characters each face their own challenges and there is always enough laughter to counterbalance the disappointments. It is a wonderfully crafted movie! And it always puts me in the spirit. I suppose it’s because it isn’t filled with predicable sentimentality and it’s definitely not traditional. Not all the characters have happy endings, and that makes it more real for me. Because, although I would love to believe there is always a ‘happily ever after’, sometimes life doesn’t turn out that way. But the nice part is, I am left with the impression that the people who don’t get what they wanted have something waiting around the corner. And hope is what gets us through the day!
Now let’s hop ever and see what the fabulous Brenda Margriet watches or reads this time of year…
