I am not a parent and this movie was hilarious, laugh out loud funny and so much more. There is a commentary on how busy and over extended our parents and in this case moms are and by extension their kids. In the search for perfection and status humanity has lost its focus on raising decent and kind kids who will make the world a better place. Mila Kunis leads this loaded cast of talented women (and a few men) into examining the human condition from a different perspective.
It’s the weekend my friends. Enjoy it to the fullest. Happy Easter and Happy Passover to those observing. Let’s have some fun in between. I am so glad the week has ended, have I said that already. Love and peace to you all.
Passover or Pesach, is a major, biblically derived Jewish holiday. Jews celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation by G-d from slavery in ancient Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses.
This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord—a lasting ordinance… Exodus 12:14
To all my friends celebrating this time of remembrance of liberation and freedom I say Shalom and may G-d be with you as you come together in family and faith. Grace and love to you all.
Six years ago I was spending my last moments at Lifetouch as they were closing the former Olan Mills Chattanooga offices and operation. I had almost eight years there. When one door closes another one opens eventually. It took me two years to land at Blood Assurance and it’s been a good ride so far. The lesson in all this is patience will be rewarded and be grateful for what you have in the moment.
Today is Good Friday, the Friday before Easter Sunday, on which the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ is commemorated in the Christian Church. It is traditionally a day of fasting and penance.
On this day I am remembering the sacrifice that Jesus made for humanity. One embraced by many. To give ones life for the cause of love is a noble one. Today I remember that act. Jesus did so much in a short amount of time that made people whole and brought people together. He was a carpenter so he built community and offered justice to the oppressed. To those who followed him he gave them a life of opportunity to do amazing things. May all of us find ways to emulate the works Jesus in our own way.
