Just a short post to express a thought I had today when I took the boys to see a movie. (Side note: THANKS to those who sent the great movie gift cards!!) A while back, might have been last summer, Hunter was dead set on getting the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret and his Grandma was kind enough to run out and get him the book. He devoured the book in short order and commented on how much he enjoyed it. Now I have never read the book myself and typical of Hunter he didn't share the story line "well, it's really hard to explain".
Fast forward to today and I decide to take advantage of a weekend afternoon to grab some Subway and a movie, Hugo in 3D (my first 3D movie). I know the movie is based on Hunter's book but not knowing anything about the story and having only seen the previews, I am pretty much unprepared for the story line which revolves around Hugo, a boy initially living with his father after having his mother pass away.... shortly followed by his father being killed in a fire...
All of which brings us to the title of today's post, you never know where you'll find it. Looking for a nice quiet getaway we get smacked in the face with a story of a kid who after loosing his mother ends up loosing his father. I guess it played to several of my recent emotional triggers, the real and current loss of Katie and the fear that I too could not be around for my boys.
Now, as it turns out the story has a happy ending, the movie is wonderfully done and everyone enjoyed watching it. It just brings the point, you never know where you'll find it.
