My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Our Saturday Night Movie


Last night Clay & I went to Blockbusters to get a movie to watch. I had read about "The Secret Life of Bees " by Sue Monk Kidd and how great and bad the reviews were. Being one who see a movie for herself instead of taking the critics' reviews or those of others. I give this movie A+ if I was to rate it. This film is about family and the power of love, based on the best selling novel, that I had read years ago. I need to get a copy for my collection of books I want to own.
While I was watching the movie I was thinking how things have changed from black people not being able to mix with whites, not being able to vote, etc., to one of them actually becoming our President.
How far we have come as a nation since the early 60's. Another great testament of Change
For me it was a feel good movie. A story and parable about how to cope with the painful truth and find forgiveness. You are taken from laughing one moment to feeling as though your heart is being tugged out of your body in the next moment. I will definitely be recommending this film to my friends if anyone were to ask.
