Bread and Bedsheets

This week I prayed, "Please God, help me to be thankful for my job." Today I watched "The Grapes of Wrath." Last Friday I watched "The Bicycle thief." Both take place around the time of the Great Depression. Both are about desperation. If you want to become thankful for such things as bread and bedsheets, (the latter being hocked to get the bicycle out of the pawn shop!) rent these movies! The two clicked, and tomorrow I am going to be happier to get up and go to work.

A wise choice on both counts, especially considering how many are unemployed in this country right now. It's always good to not take things for granted.

This week I got Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca. Have you seen it?

Very mature discussion and perspective - I didn't know what I was getting into when I came to this website!
