Today is a Hard Day

Fifteen years ago today, God blessed me with a beautiful daughter, Simone Asjyana Lanae. While she was only here with me for four short months, those days I remember like yesterday and will cherish for the rest of my life. It is unfortunate that she was taken so soon but our loved one's are only loaned to us for a time before God calls them home. While knowing that does not make this pain I feel any easier to bare, I am blessed to have had the time that I did with her. She is now in a better place with my sister, brother and other family and friends that have been called home to the Lord. Each day, no matter how hard it may seem, is a true blessing and I thank you Lord for each and every day! Rest in peace my angel!

The hubby and I were lucky enough to attend an advanced screening of Brad Pitt's latest movie "Moneyball".  While I had seen the previews, I had no intentions on going to the theatre to see it.  The movie probably wouldn't have been high and my 'must rent' list either.  However, I am glad that we had the chance to see it.  The movie was very entertaining, funny and sometimes a little emotional (it doesn't take much to get me all worked but most importantly it had a message of hope and determination.

Without giving away too much, this movie focuses on having the guts to go against 'the way it's always been done', making tough decisions, standing behind those decisions and dealing with the various consequences. While the story is centered around baseball, everyone can relate to this movie in one way or another.  I recommend all Brad Pitt lovers ; ), baseball fans and those who just like a good movie to check it out.  You'll be glad you did!

Until the next time-
