This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Movie Review: Take the Lead

Take the Lead - starring Antonio Banderas

Based on a true story, Antonio Banderas stars as Pierre Dulaine, a professional ballroom dancer who volunteers to teach a group of misfits how to dance. His hope is that they will also learn good manners and respect for others and themselves, thus leading to making better choices in their lives.

When Dulaine arrives at the school, the students think he is a joke, and try to laugh it off. After a while, they come to realize they don't really have a choice so they begin to take his instruction a little more serious. Before they know it, they find themselves quite enjoying the art of ballroom dancing.

This movie, while predictable, was still worth watching. It is heartwarming to see young people realize that they do not have to follow the footsteps of their parents, and that just because you grow up on the wrong side of the tracks doesn't mean you have to stay there. If nothing else, it was worth it just to see Antonio Banderas because, admit it, he's easy to look at!
