Happy Thanksgiving

I LOVE this movie, Joe versus the Volcano.
Joe is a hypochondriac convinced he has only six months to live so he agrees to throw himself into a volcano. Long story short--he finds himself adrift at sea on his floating luggage. One night Joe stands in front of the rising moon, overwhelmed by its grandeur, and perhaps, his own insignificance and thanks the Lord for his life. It is at this point he begins to live.

I think we all need moments in life that remind us to be grateful for our lives, less than perfect as they are. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and let your heart ponder over all the little things you are grateful for.


  1. Wow Mary Ann, I have to say that your post was very inspirational. I love "Joe Versus the Volcano" and that is my most favorite part of the whole movie. I am so glad you chose to blog about it. It reminds me of the good and simple things in life. Perhaps you may not get discovered anytime soon as an author, but you are enjoying the journey.. which is something that not very many people can say. I am lucky to be your friend and love reading your blog. Thanks for your inspiration.

  2. I have no response to that. (If you know the movie, you know they line.) I love how Joe finds love and a whole new outlook on life. Of course, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have such a chemistry that I don't think they can do a movie together that doesn't reflect that.


Thank you for your family-friendly comments!
