Last night was GNO. They just don't seem to come around often enough. I've been going out with more or less the same group of girls since about 1989 (can I still call us girls.......absolutely). Usually it's just dinner but occasionally we get crazy and add a movie or outing. Last night after dinner we went to see "The Help".
It was such a beautiful and poignant movie. I'm so glad I was able to share that experience with "girls" that are so special to me.
I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone else but let's just say bringing a few (or more) tissues might be a good idea. About half of us read the book first and the other choose to see the movie first. Both sides enjoyed it equally and no one had issues following the plot. The book has so much more time to develop the characters so my suggestion would be to read it first.
What I learned.....
As a mother I certainly need to step it up in being more purposeful in my words to my children and grandchildren. Well everyone really.
