Dreaming of True Love’s Kiss? (SPOILER ALERT)

My grand daughter had me sit through the movie, Frozen, about four times last week.  I didn’t mind.  It is a great movie, slightly different from the typical meet Prince Charming and get the True Love’s Kiss to save you from an evil demise.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the typical fairy tale plot of falling in love at first sight and waiting and dreaming of True Love’s Kiss.  Works every time.  Enchanted is one of my most favorite Fairy Tale movies.

You know what is going to happen in each one.  Wicked witch or evil serpent or poison apple – it’s pretty much a given that something will happen to the Princess, and the charming Prince will save the day with a Kiss.  I love it.

But in Frozen there is a plot twist.  An unexpected end to the curse.  I love it more!  When that adorably funny snowman, Olaf, explains to Anna what True Love is, and then …….. it twists again to a bind of deep, true love between sisters; family!

Love, Love it!  It is so refreshing to watch this with my grand daughter, who has a sister now, and tell her things about sisterly love and family ties.  Of course, she is only two and a half and I’m not sure what she is getting from this, but I do know that she gets the “sister” part and she even implied that she, herself, was Elsa.  Too cute.

Here is Olaf explaining to Anna about True Love………. I won’t post the ultimate True Love video —- watch the movie, you will love it.

A Picture is Worth

For this fine Sunday morning where we apparently gained an hour of sleep in most parts of the USA, I bring you a simple picture of our two grand daughters.  Meet Lucy and Penny June.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  What do you see?  I was there and I know how thrilled Lucy was to get a new sister.  But perhaps one could see a big sister dreaming of being, well, in control perhaps?

Enjoy your Sunday and enjoy your life.  Would love to hear your thoughts.
