Here is another chance for you to take part of the things I love….and remember??? win a chance (or another chance) at a WONDERFUL giveaway!!!!
Just add your two cents worth. Easy huh?
Here is something I …….LOVE.
Have you seen it??? do you love or (since I refrain from the “H” word as much as possible) dislike it???
You can not EVEN imagine how much I love it.
This show….TAKES ME BACK!! to a place I want to be AGAIN.
The cast and setting highlights a large family, VERY tight siblings, and a wide variety of personalities.
LOTS of imperfections….yet LOTS of love and compassion, and understanding, and overlooking etc etc etc. They cover it ALL and then some.
Isn’t that what “family” is all about???
yes. it . is .
I went on a Parenthood marathon this weekend. I actually purchased the entire set of Season 1. I have watched them all when it was aired, but guess what?? I spent HOURS watching it again. I used to barely watch TV, let alone BUY the digital edition!!! Good Lord…… and I would have never imagined watching the same show TWICE. I did this weekend, and if time allowed, I would start all over again and do it a third time. I know. Crazy huh??
I came to a conclusion this weekend while viewing it.
As happy as the show makes my heart feel, it also NEVER once fails to bring me to tears. I am talking get a tissue, BIG heartfelt tears. Every . single . time.
I want my parents back. I want a “family home” again. I have a large extended family and we are VERY VERY close, but there is just something missing when you no longer have parents or a “home” to go and see “Mom & daddy”. I still struggle with this. Alot. More than I even thought. For those of you that still DO have this??? count your blessings….life is short.
Parenthood can take me there, for one hour a week, and I can just reflect and soak it ALL in………
I can also almost pinpoint each personality in the show to a family member of mine.
One of the “families” is nearly a carbon copy of my family of 4. Relate??? oh yes, I can relate.
This show makes ME a better parent. I swear. It also makes me a more appreciative family member to my siblings, spouses, inlaws, etc etc etc.
It is ALL good.
Even my tears are good. They are tears of happiness and reflection on the wonderful family I can call my own. When I cry, it is because I remember “those days” so well, and I am determined to hold tight to what to that extended family that I have left.
Now…..if Parenthood is NOT something you watch, let me know the shows you DO watch….and of course, love.
Who knows, maybe I will get hooked on those as well.
Leave me your comments….and you are one step closer to becoming a winner. :)
