HP message in: HORTON HEARS A WHO movie

my son...has gone through alot after his dad died...he may have been only 10mths old but very close to daddy...

my son and i where having an ALONE NITE and it was his turn to pick out a movie...he picks Horton hears a WHO from DR.SEUSUS(misspelled I think)Dvd.

so where watching and this it how it went:
watching the movie as the speck is on the clover and Horton is holding onto the clover and talking to the Mayor on the speck (Who ville)

Mayor: "where are you Horton?"
Horton: "well, i guess from where your looking, up in the sky" Horton precedes to talk to himself, "gee well if i am up in the sky for the Mayor, there must be something greater then myself, way up in the sky..way beyond."

my son turns to me .."you know mom, i never looked at it like that before"
"Yep", i said, " I believe there is something greater than ourselves"

WOW from my 9 year old kid!! I say, its never to young to teach these PRINCIPLEs to my kids and doing it in all our affairs....

just wanted to share

I love that line in the movie... there is always something greater than us... no matter how big and invincible we think we are!!

Thanks for the reminder!

Wink Thanks Maggie

It is a rainy day here in Iowa, so tonight I'm going to watch Horton..WHO.
I don't have kids but love kids movies. Thank you for your comments on my blog. and I love your profile pic. This recovery thing is so amazing to me. I now look forward to meetings, volunteering, and meeting new people. Who would have thunk that there is an amazing gift of alcoholism. Happy Spring to you! Colleen

(((Maggie))) - smart boy you have, there!!

I remember, when I was going to meetings, a bunch of us went to this one guys house who had a really nice TV, surround sound, etc., and we watched.....Finding Nemo Can't remember all of the movie, but I remember that we all found something in it that pertained to recovery, acknowledging powerlessness, etc. BTW, we ranged from ages 19 - 40's, but it was really fun

May have to watch Horton soon!

Hugs and prayers,

Amy
