Okay. I'm going to go all controversial on you but I think you can handle it.........
So. According to yesterday's cover of Parade Magazine, "Saavy and determined, Reese Witherspoon learns: 'Family is all we have in Life.'"
Uh, really? I disagree.
What about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit? What about the Bible, our friends, our homes, our pets, our books, our talents, our hobbies, our memories?
What about mountains, oceans, forests, deserts, meadows and farmland? What about libraries, museums, churches, schools and cities--those we've visited and have yet to visit? What about photography, shopping and Christmas?
What about our teachers, preachers, neighbors and the waitresses down at the coffee shop? What about the Internet and blogs and bloggers and kindred spirits we've met or may never meet? Or music, letters in the mailbox or email?
What about glorious mornings and golden afternoons and dusk and the moon and shooting stars? What about friendship, sitting on the porch or hiking or lying on your couch in the living room watching tv or dvd's of your favorite shows? What about tea parties, birthday parties, candlelight, chocolate cake, spaghetti, potatoes and roast? What about sports and our jobs and housecleaning and taking walks?
What about the myriad other things I've not even mentioned??
C'mon Reese...... we have just one thing in Life? Really?
Or were you misquoted?
