Toy Story One entered our lives in 1995....Jared was 1 yo, Jamin was 4 - the perfect Toy Story Age.....I can remember scouring the shelves for a Woody....ah the fun memories.
Today, Toy Story 3 hit Misawa Air Base. We will be out all day tomorrow. I dreaded trying an Opening Day showing, but knew if I didn't do it today, we might miss a movie the kids were looking forward to (Ok, me too). We went to the 3 p.m. showing. No line at all, lots of space in the theater......
Great movie....I knew it might tug on the heart strings a bit as Andy is going away...but I was NOT prepared to have a memory loop of Jamin at four running through my mind during the whole movie....and I lost it totally when Mom saw his empty room, Andy driving away......Ah man...growing up is GREAT and we long for our children to be functioning members of society....but I sure miss those days when we had all the chicks at home in the nest.
If you had a Woody Lover, your husband is deployed and your Woody Lover is thousands of miles away....take kleenex....but come to think of it....many with children in college wouldn't have the excuse of a pre-schooler to take the movie to and may not even go. ::snort:: I think God is letting me live a rather extended childhood through the past few decades. LOL
Living all of life before the face of God...
