Jenny and I were talking about marathon-watching TV shows the other day. TV series that you didn’t watch when they were on their regular run or ones that you just find on Netflix or ? when you just need to sink your teeth into a really good show to escape real life. She made the comment that watching them as a marathon is usually the best way to do it if its a REALLY GOOD SHOW! That happened to me with Parenthood. I didn’t watch the first few seasons but heard everyone talking about it so by about the third season I started the 1st season on Amazon Prime…hour after hour after hour until I got caught up. Then comes the final season…..I was having a hard time dealing with this show being over so I DVR’d it instead of watching it, then hoarded the episodes and watched a couple at a time. That’s the way to really watch a good TV show. Last night, I decided to bite the bullet and finish it. He went to bed at a normal time and I started the finale episode at 3AM this morning. It was an amazing show for me. It always made me feel some emotion and it always made me introspective. I will always feel the Braverman family are old friends that I knew once.
I also had a couple of other moments in the last week – a connection type comment from someone I don’t know very well and a shared post on my Facebook page from a cousin’s son that totally took me by surprise and gave me an umph…I think that most of us need those kind, caring connections occasionally to reinforce that someone else appreciates our value and recognizes that we are who we think we are.
It’s really the little acts of kindness that can make our day!
Until next time…
