Just a couple of random thoughts from this weekend.
1. I watched "My Sister's Keeper" from beginning to end for the first time yesterday with my mother-in-law. Incredibly sad movie BUT I was so mad at the mom by the end that is all I really took away from the movie. I have 4 children and I can't imagine sacrificing one so that another could live. The mother in this movie never thought twice about sacrificing her 11 year old for the sake of her other daughter. She was willing to take everything from her and let's be honest that was the only reason she had her in the first place. I actually turned to my mother-in-law at one point and asked her "So if the older one needed a heart do you think that mom would think twice about offering up the younger one's?" And yes, I know it was a movie. But the complete lack of love and concern for that one child was just infuriating.
2. Mindy Mcready (the country singer) committed suicide yesterday leaving behind a 6 year old and a 10 month old. Seriously! You are a mom! You don't come first anymore. What did you do to those children? Of course the older one will go live with his dad but what about the baby who now has 2 parents who didn't love him enough to stay on this earth. It just makes me mad. And no I don't know them but as a mom my thoughts would have been about my boys and what they needed not that I was missing my dead boyfriend so I decided to kill myself and leave my 2 helpless children without a mother.
3. There is a Twitter party tonight for Overcoming the Lie! Use the hashtag #overcomingthelie and join us at 9 P.M./ EST. And stay tuned for March 4th when the blog tour will be stopping here!!!!! I am really excited.
4. I am in Mamabear mode today. I don't know if it was from the movie yesterday and then that person killing themselves but I just am.
HAVE A GREAT MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
