In my quest to keep myself entertained through trying times, I have read and watched these things over the past week.
The Book of Awesome:
Surprisingly, much better than I thought it would be. It's based on a blog of which I'm a very big fan. I love taking note of the little things to be grateful about, and Neil Pasricha has come up with many that I never even thought about! Definitely makes you remember that there are great things in life, and for those with chronic illness...maybe it will stand for a voice to tell everyone to press on.
Love and Other Drugs:
Again with chronic illness! I LOVED this film. Loved, loved, loved! I plan on watching it all of the time. It involves a young woman with a chronic illness, and a man who decides to love her without knowing exactly what challenges are ahead. Reminds me a little of my own relationship. A must-watch.
The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler:
Wow. Irena Sendler is now my hero. This may be a Hallmark movie, but it kept me captivated through every scene. I was inspired, I was heartbroken, and my world changed a little bit. I want to be the type of woman who would put it all on the line. This film is incredible.
One of everyone's favorite musicals! I always forget how good this movie is until it pops up on my television. I have the DVD but never seem to watch it. I should though, as it is great at picking my mood up. The songs are just too good. I sometimes wish my life was a musical.
