Good Day, Beautiful People!
Last month, my working sisterhood connect organised http://www.thea21campaign.org/index.php the A21 Campaign fundraising movie event. The ladies choice was http://momsnightoutmovie.com/ Moms’ Night Out. I pitched in to coodinate and rally the ladies out for fun and doing good deed at the same time. We are so stoked that we raised A$314 for the night. Honestly, is an excellent, heartwarming, entertaining comedy with a compelling message for single and family to watch. Seriously, you don’t have to be a mom to enjoy this movie. I am not a mom and I utterly love this movie. Personally, I don’t know why this movie has received many critics and bad reviews. I still don’t quite get it. Perhaps the saying is truth,”haters gonna hate, no matter you are doing good or bad. They still have something to say.”
Below are some good endorsement from some high profile people.

“A powerful and humorous look inside the everyday family. One that makes you stand and applaud women everywhere who embrace the role of ‘Mommy’!” Joe Pellegrino, President, Legacy Minded Men
Well, if you haven’t seen it on the big screen, get the DVD or rent the DVD to enjoy with family and friends.
Well, who like to argue with Dr Seuss’s philosophy. I’m sticking to his side. “I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”
To truly laugh, you must be able take pain, and play with it. – Charlie Chaplin
We all know that life is never a bed of roses. There are seasons and you cannot avoid. During the season of darkness and pain, you literally have to take every once of body to find that joy. You need some people come along side to create the laughter, tell you jokes and see some comedy movies to lighten the hard season. Challenging season don’t last, the strong people last. Soon you will able to laugh and play again without effort.
Sharing this as it cracks me up! Lol Can’t wait to see the movie Noah by Russell Crowe.
“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have courage to accept love in return.” – Maya Angelou
Wisdom to ponder:
Love this promise:
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the future. – Proverbs 31:25
