The Lorax

I really want to see the Lorax.  Luckily I live with a little guy so I have the perfect excuse to go to this movie.  I can pretend it’s all about him.  Seriously though, I love the message of the Lorax and want my son to realize how truthful this line is:

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It’s not.” – The Lorax by Dr. Seuss


Am I the only one who wants to see this movie?  Please tell me I’m not alone!

Random Thought Thursday: March 1 Edition

  1. I’m bored of Pinterest already.  Two weeks in and I really don’t care.  Everyone said I would love it and I should give it a chance.  I do think people’s boards are pretty and I’ve found some nice ideas but overall just not something I spend time on.  I feel like I’m missing something as so many people love it but I am lukewarm.
  2. I adore Fringe.  I was annoyed at the beginning of the season but now that they are going back to their roots I find I love it once more.  If you haven’t seen it, watch it!  It’s intelligent and you don’t find a lot of intelligence on television anymore.
  3. I’m really enjoying the reading I’ve been doing for Lent.  A lot of my books deal with change and the church in the future so I find that’s where I’m drifting right now.  I would love some suggestions for other spiritual reading if you have any.
  4. I used to love the Oscars.  I would watch for the fashions and root for certain people.  This year as I sat down to watch I was shocked when I realized that I haven’t seen one movie that was nominated.  This was a tragedy and really makes me realize how much my husband and I need to prioritize date night!
  5. I killed my orchid that I received for Christmas from Gran.  It was beautiful until it wasn’t.  Apparently I gave it a fungus by overwatering. Sadly by the time I realized what was happening to it, it had perished. Luckily I still have the orchid my husband got me from Valentine’s day.

When you believe…

When I heard that Whitney Houston died this week I was stunned. While her struggles were widely reported, it’s still a shock when someone unexpectedly goes so young. Her talent will be greatly missed by so many.

Whitney Houston was always a big presence in my music rotation throughout my youth.  I loved many of her songs from ‘I will always love you’ to ‘I wanna dance with somebody’ but ‘When you believe’ is probably my favorite.  I love the message behind it and the reminder that no matter how dark things get, they can always turn around.

There can be miracles when you believe…
