Mother's Day Edition: I asked my Mom to share her favorites today. Please note: The views expressed herein are hers and do not necessarily represent the views of me.
When I asked my Mom about her favorite book, she answered "The Bible." So yes, she played the Jesus card. But truth be told, it really is the book she reads the most. And not in a mean I-know-more-than-you way but in a I-need-God-because-this-place-is-crazy way.
My mom adores feel-good movies. Her favorite is Dragonfly starring Kevin Costner and Kathy Bates (trailer above). It's about a grieving doctor who is being contacted by his late wife through his patients' near-death experience. I think the "Kevin Costner" part is the clincher. She also recommends the following:
- Sports: Remember the Titans. Denzel Washington.
- Time Travel: Frequency. James Caviezel AND Dennis Quaid.
- PG-Oh My: The Thorn Birds. Richard Chamberlain.
- Cartoon: The Little Mermaid. Obviously we part ways on this one.
Have you ever seen those black and white clips of girls screaming when they saw Elvis? Then you've seen my Mom. We actually both love this particular song the best - Bossa Nova Baby from the album Viva Elvis.
What might you recommend to me and my mom this week?
Don't forget: I'm giving away a $25 Amazon gift card for sharing your favorite fictional Mom.
