These twelve blogs bring a smile to my face in some way or the other each day. 

Thank you so much Mama Gator for making my day!

I have read many books then watched the movie only to be disappointed by the movie because it's not even close to the book.

 My Sisters Keeper is the same, the book was a real tear jerk er, just like the movie.  It seems to me though, if they were going to change it so much couldn't they have ended it happier? 

The one thing the movie omitted was a love story that was happening between the lawyer and the guardian ad litem.  Omitting this love story also omitted this quote that I think sums up the idea of love perfectly:

"You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not"

— Jodi Picoult (My Sister's Keeper)

It's that nice?  I love my husband, Lord knows that man is not perfect!  (Neither am I - but don't tell anyone ;o)  
One last thing - this weekend my Sister in Law - Jessica came in 2nd runner up in the Colgate Country Showdown.  Here is a video of her singing "Broken Wing" by Martina McBride.

Aw shucks, thanks for the award! I love that you stop by everyday to read. Sorry about my absence lately. Not having a working computer has been really rough on me. :)

Your sister-in-law sounds awesome too. Congrats on 2nd place to her!

Congratulations on your award. I love getting them too.
I like all of your thoughts. I sort of wanted to see that movie but never got up the nerve. I am not sure I will see it if you say it is sad.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
I will be back to yours.
