Thank you!

Just finished watching the movie, “Sliding Doors”…movie from 1998, quite a pleasant surprise! ♥ John Hannah…and Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t too bad either. 🙂

James: Cheer up. Remember what the Monty Python boys say.
Helen: “Always look on the bright side of life”?
James: No, “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.”

Sweet Dreams – Emily Browning

During my movie marathon weekend, came across this movie, “Sucker Punch”…suspended reality and enjoyed it,,,even though disturbingly sad….

Some of my fav movie lines:
Sweet Pea: Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can’t know what form they’ll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don’t let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they’re not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it’s us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.

Sweet Pea: And finally this question, the mystery of who’s story it will be. Of who draws the curtain. Who is it that chooses our steps in the dance? Who drives us mad? Lashes us with whips and crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it, that does all of these things?

Sweet Pea: Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us, and at the same time sings that we will never die? Who teaches us what’s real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we’ll die to defend? Who chains us? And Who holds the key that can set us free… It’s You. You have all the weapons you need. Now Fight!

Wiseman: If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.

Wiseman: For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.

Yes…the sooner you embrace the harsh reality…The less pain you will feel.. ♥

Mundane, Mediocrity then boom… Moonstruck…

Ah definitely a movie marathon this weekend….flipping channels and hit pay dirt! Moonstruck!!! Still one of my all-time favorite romantic comedies!  Some say it’s dated. Yay!  It may definitely show my age. But I love this movie – all the characters are so beautifully flawed.  I cried and felt my heart surge. 

And one of my all-time fav movie lines: 

Ronny Cammareri: “Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn’t know this either, but love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and *die*. The storybooks are *bullshit*. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and *get* in my bed!”


Ronny Cammareri: I love you.
Loretta Castorini: Snap out of it!

Jakob Dylan “You’re No Match”

Still feeling under the weather, so its been a movie marathon weekend already. Came across this little unknown film….not the best, not the worst. It’s a movie for anyone whose life has been thrown off-course, out of whack, or simply not turned out the way they planned it. Heard this song from the movie soundtrack…had to share…♥

I may be down for the count
I may not get up again
Now, you could say I gave out
But that I never gave in…

#TsTuesdayTirade: bronchitis, asthma….be gone!

Today’s festivities: Curled up on the couch, watching TV all day and trying not to deflate a lung by coughing so much…yes, definitely coughing my life away….Coughing so much and hard that I am actually concerned that I will fracture a rib. What a waste of a personal day!!

There is an old proverb that states, “Life is in the breath. He who half breathes half lives.” Chronic bronchitis and asthma is wreaking havoc on my life….missing out on Fat Tuesday fun, as well as National Pound Cake Day & International Pancake Day…sigh…. Ever just want to scream out, “Calgon….take me away!” Well, I would but it hurts too much. This would be me…if I liked cats and could tolerate taking a bath in this polar vortex…#TsTuesdayTirade: bronchitis, asthma….be gone!


My friend just texted me to ask how I was doing. She was concerned about me as I have been sick for a week. And dealing with elderly parents, all of our chronic back and leg pain, not to mention all the daily chores of housework, caring for dog’s needs, and working an outside full time job. My response to her was this, “Do Christians ever have a breaking point? Because I believe I’m approaching mine!” I was most definitely experiencing a “Calgon…take me away” moment – my breaking point.

Each day we take between 14,000 and 25,000 breaths. It is the single most important process of our bodies and yet so many of us don’t pay any attention to our breathing. We are always on the run, and the result of this can lead to shallow short breathing. This means we are not allowing the right amount of oxygen into our organs and the amount the body needs to optimally perform. Hence, why I am sick, stressed…so I will continue to pray, hope…and inhale and exhale…
