Over the past couple of months, I have seen some really great movies... Just want to take a moment and share. :)
I loved this movie !! Sandra Bullock was amazing in it. I loved how it was a true story, and that the message is that it doesn't matter what color you are, or who you are... "Family is Family" !!
I was a little worried about seeing this movie in fear that it would hit too close to home. It did, but not in a bad way !! The symbolism and beauty of the story, changed the bad to good. I have heard that the book is ten times better. I am going to read it, because the movie was awesome. My sister took me and I am glad that she did. :)
I have decided that Robert Downey Jr. is my favorite actor as of late !! He is just amazing in this movie. I love how quirky he is !!

This past weekend we celebrated my Tessarou's Birthday !! She is one and I can't believe it!! The whole family came over including Charlie's family from California. Stace and Charlie did a great job on the party. The theme was Mickey Mouse, which is Tessa's favorite.. Of Course !! :) We opened presents, ate, and watched Tessa chow down on her cake. Words cannot describe how I feel about this little girl. She brightens my life, and continually reminds me of what is important. Charlie and Stacy are amazing people to have such an amazing little girl. I am grateful that they share her with me and that she is in my life... My little butterfly :)

I found this picture as I was surfing on one of my favorite sites, Deviant Art. It slammed into me, like a punch to the heart. I love what it can symbolize and mean depending on how you look at it. To me.. in life... most of what we do is done on faith. As little kids, we had blind faith... we would do things whether we knew it hurt us or not. We would touch the hot stove and then realize it hurt and not do it again. We would run to strangers, until we felt the comfort and warmth of those closest to us, and then we shied away from those we don't know. As we get older... I feel that blind faith is left behind. We have experienced more, been hurt more, or get comfortable in our securities, so we tend to hold back not willing to take that leap, or choose what we want to have faith in. One of my favorite things about this picture is the dark and light sky. Having complete faith at times can lead to pain, to darkness, but I truly feel that when we take that leap we are stronger for it. I wish that I could leap more !! I look at my nieces and nephews, my students... and see that glint of willingness to leap more. This picture makes me want to stand on the edge more... to take a chance more... to commit to what I know. But, I often find that I just stand there like this picture afraid of being hurt... comfortable in my security. Seriously, though I am afraid of heights... maybe I should take up repelling. :) I would love to know what you see ?!!

I had to share this picture...cause it's hilarious. These are the teachers in my department. Our librarian is making posters to promote reading in the library. So she decided to take pics of all the departments at our school to make posters. We all brought one of our favorite books and did a pose for her. I am yet once again going to state how lucky I am to do what I do... and I can even do it acting like an idiot... hence, my idiotic facial expression. :)
