Special family memories
Two weeks ago we took some of our kids and grandbabies to see Toy Story 4. Raising our family on the first three movies, enjoying them several times. Voices from the characters so familiar, songs that made you smile, endings that made you cry.
I love Forky
When the trailer for Toy Story 4 came out, I judged Forky unfairly. Having no desire to see the movie. Happy I changed my mind. It was not Forky’s appearance that I judged, but that he would fall apart and Bonnie would be sad. Bonnie being sad in the movie, with those big eyes and the music, I would cry. But, I went anyway and cried and fell in love with Forky. I am glad I went.
One night, late, our youngest daughter and her three little one’s, knocked on the door. Knowing my love for writing, they surprised me with this notebook. I told her I knew exactly how I was going to fill each page!
Two days before she arrived with this sweet gift, my husband gave me a surprise. He had me sit down at the computer and type in MasterClass. A year of online classes! Seeing them advertised on Facebook, I wanted so badly to go to school.
My teachers are on MasterClass.
Each morning I watch two classes and write on these pages. Two special gifts in a couple of days. Finishing high school, I got married at 19 and started a family. Never going to college, I have not had any writing classes. I am beyond thankful for the chance to be humble and learn.
Forky and I are homemade. Makes me smile. Made with love to be loved.
