I watched a movie the other night on the UP channel. I almost didn't watch it but something made me sit there and learn these people's stories. The movie was called "A Cross to Bear." In this movie a child grew up with an alcoholic mother and she learned life's lessons in this manner. She grows up to try and achieve a dream of her own only to find a man, and begin drinking and eventually becomes pregnant, as she realizes this she is kicked out, the boyfriend moved on without her, which happens to many. She becomes homeless and has the baby, I won't tell you the whole movie lets just say it has some tragic circumstances that bring her to a home for women. She learns to become independent, face her past and move on as life continues to move us. I guess my lesson in this movie is although tragic and horrifying as it was we all have our cross to bear, and the past molds us into the people we are or have become. But someone should be helping these people know that our past does not define us. We ALL make mistakes and from those mistakes we must move on, even if it is in a different direction then that we initially intended to go. I will be doing my best to post more frequently. Although classes start back in August. Thanks to all those who frequent this page, any prayers would be greatly appreciated.
