One of My Favorite Movies
I watch this movie every Christmas season, "One Magic Christmas". My husband usually finds me sniffling even when I try to hide. Normally I do not recommend emotional movies as they leave me drained but this one is special.
I like it because I can relate to the main character, a flustered mom. I too feel at times that I'm the only one in the house with any sense of reality and responsibility. I know this is not the case but being rational is not one of my strengths. For example, I can be a real penny pincher. Recently, I threw a fit when my husband threw a $10 bottle of honey into the shopping cart without me knowing until I reviewed the receipt. He was thinking that he got the most for the money and I'm thinking that $10 is just outrageous for honey! It totally ruined my "savings in coupons" and "total money spent" ratio on the receipt. I returned it and bought the cheap honey bear.
Back to the movie, this mom is struggling with having a Christmas spirit in the midst of her husband being laid off, working for a jerk of a boss, and just being "Mom". She learns the hard way what life would be without her children and her husband. It's a great story with a good ending. Love it!
