There's nothing sweeter than a short, independent film with heart. Thanks, Suzelle, for sending this clip to me. (It's 16 minutes, but I promise you, it's worth it.)
Also, I was honored to be asked to write a short column over at Today's Mama about the best gift I ever got. It's a bit sentimental, but I meant every word.

haven’t had time to watch the video – am sure it’s great – but did hop over and read your spot on Today’s Mama – and it was wonderful – exactly the things I say about my sweetheart. We have the best don’t we? Add two great kids and how could life be any better? Am starting a new cookie a month on my blog [and giving proper credit to the recipe source -see my barley soup recipe for the reference to you…] if you want to take a look – the secret? Make a batch , eat just a couple, and ship the rest to the kids at Auburn! http://www.bepresentbereal.blogspot.com
I read the article and it’s perfect! Looks like you, like me, married a good man 🙂 It’s the small every day gifts of support and love that make life worth living! Have a great rest of your week 🙂

I’ll watch this later today – but I have to tell you that the other clip you posted a while back about the women & the club, it got me to thinking and I’m starting a working moms lunch club where I live and at the first meeting I’m going to play that clip. Thanks for finding the coolest stuff on you tube!

Loved the short film. I like TJ Thyne so him being in it made it even better but it was a great film. They say that smiling in contagious.
I liked your article too. Very sincere. Thanks for sharing both!
That video is awesome! I am smiling so much now and I was thinking I was going to have a bad day. I feel so validated 🙂

Katrina Grabowski says
Thank you for making my day the article was so right on. My husband is not at all a gift giver like most. One mothers day he and the boys planted me a rose garden and said don’t ever say I don’t bring you flowers. Grant it I have to take care of them and cut them my self but the gesture was there. Your the best! Dan is also lucky to have you in his life. Have a great day.
Love the video, thanks for sharing!
KarenK in CA says
Oh I loved this video! Just my cup-o-tea. Check out his other one, too – it’s a musical in the men’s lavatory, LOL!
Beautiful sentiment you wrote, also. I expected something self-deprecating and witty, but you a strong “serious” writer as well. TFS
You are awesome! Thanks for posting that video…made my day.
Thanks Cathy. You are Awesome!
Am I supposed to be sitting here all choked up with tears in my eyes? Yes? Then good!
well I just adore TJ Thyne so I knew it would have to be good! But I had no idea how good!! What a great video! 🙂 Happy tears all over the place here! TFS

Nancy Lee says
I watched the video. The message was awesome and I made my husband watch it too. I think he had tears in his eyes at the end too (I did too even second time around). I sent it to my friends and children too. Thanks so much for sharing. And Cathy, your blog always makes me smile. You have the ability to relate to people, make them laugh with and about you. You are so talented, not just wiht your ability to write but you scrapping too. THANKS for being you.

Thanks for the link to the movie. It really put a smile on my face in the middle of potty training. I really like TJ Thyne, too.
