Refreshing

Written by cycleguy on February 11th, 2018

This past Friday night I honored Jo.

Now…before you get to thinking, “My. my, what a great husband,” let me tell you how I did. You may also change your mind from “what a great husband” to “what a cad.” Okay…maybe not that bad, but you may change your mind.

Friday is my day off. It was anything but a day off as we had a chiropractor appointment, had time to eat lunch and then headed to Terre Haute (almost an hour away) for a funeral visitation of a fine, godly man who died quickly from cancer. His son owns the Nissan dealership where I buy my vehicles. Anyway, we rushed back after that to go to the local theater to see a movie.

A movie I had no desire to see whatsoever. But one she wanted to see. I wanted to honor her so I went.

How was I supposed to know I would come away refreshed? Laughing? Feeling good? And wanting to see it again?  Yeah…I wanted to honor her with the wrong attitude.  But I am so glad I did!!! Some of her movies/musicals I cringe at seeing (like Beauty and the Beast) but this is one time I chose to go.

The movie?  Actually a musical. Here’s the big moment… The Greatest Showman. Exceptional movie with fantastic music. The core meaning of the movie stands out: All lives matter.  Hmmm seems like I know SOMEONE who taught us that.

My song for today? Here is one of them from the movie. Please take the time to listen and read the lyrics as you do.  In the movie the character she plays has PCOS. Hers manifested itself in a full beard. The lyrics speak even louder when you know that.

We might actually go see it again this afternoon. Hard to beat a free movie.

    Our son and wife raved to us about this movie so we are going to go see it this afternoon. And that song, powerful.

    I love that you share how you love your wife, Bill.

    Actually we might end up at a matinee this afternoon ourselves! Could be a first now that I think of it …

    Tis the season.

  3. Sounds like a fantastic movie, Bill! Probably won’t see it in the theater, but will rent when it becomes available.
    Blessings!

      We are fortunate Martha. Our theater only charges $5 for a movie and the concessions are way cheap also. (Don’t have to take out a small loan to get them). But I do hope you will watch it and I’m betting that Virginia Rose will like it also. Lots of dancing.
