Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #70 Dear Frankie
I love foreign films. I really don't have a problem with accents distracting me either.. When we came across this amazing love story a few years ago... We totally fell in love with it... Mind you Gerard Butler was not the big star he now is in the U.S.. This move touches you in so many ways. The Love that a mother has for a child, whether it's a grown up child (mother & daughter) or a small child (mother & son). Learning to open your heart and make room for others can be so healing. Children can work miracles and Frankie is so trusting and loving...

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #69 - Dan in Real Life
“Love is not a feeling, Mr. Burns. It's an ability.” There’s a point in the movie where Dan talks to Marie about this and Marie points out that Dan’s daughter is gifted because she has a strong ability to love Dan. That got my wheels turning. There are many days when I don’t feel very loving. In fact, there are days, when I think I’d rather be out digging ditches than at home with my three kids trying to ‘survive’. I argue with them (as calmly as I can of course :) because I love them and I’m trying to point them in the right direction. I listen to them (or at least try to) when they have something on their mind. I encourage them to keep practicing their reading or spelling or music lessons because I see how their accomplishments give them confidence. I persist and I dig deeper inside myself to find patience, kindness, and forgiveness because I love them. After that long thought, I remembered that it’s not only me. My hubby does the same.
He can be so patient with them in areas that I am not. He is able to teach them certain things that I don’t think to teach them. Since I’m human and not perfect, he’s takes over the loving and nurturing when I’m completely tapped out. It was with these fond thoughts of my dh that I decided to make him a Father’s Day card. He may not say the ‘L’ word often but the kids could never doubt his love for them through his actions.
On another side thought, this movie made me realize that I am blessed because I am able to love. It’s so hard to believe (and so sad) that there are people out there who are unable to love. While loving my children might not always give me warm fuzzies and goosebumps, it is reassuring and rewarding to see them learning how to love.
