You want the moon?

My favorite Christmas movie of all time is It's a Wonderful Life. I like to watch it every year on x-mas eve. I know it is cheesy- but that movie always moves me in some way.

Yesterday I was telling Pete how I wish I could bottle Eliza up! She has so much happiness and joy I just want t harness it and keep it forever.

And then I remembered this scene from It's a Wonderful Life!

George Bailey: What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary.
Mary: I'll take it. Then what?
George Bailey: Well, then you can swallow it, and it'll all dissolve, see... and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair... am I talking too much?

I decided I want to swallow up Eliza and let her happiness and joy radiate through my whole body! I bet moonbeams would shoot through my fingers and toes- and just maybe I'll bottle some up and save it for later.

My favorite too! I used to love when it came on right after the Thanksgiving parade. I always thought of it as the start of the Christmas season

I love It's a Wonderful Life, too. My mom got it for me this year so I can watch it whenever I want now!
