I’ve been meaning to watch Wonder Woman with my girls on its first day at cinemas. I grew up watching Super Friends on TV, and Wonder Woman has always been my favorite character. I would also watch reruns of the Wonder Woman TV series that featured Lynda Carter in the 80’s when I was in elementary. Since my husband is also a big fan of DC (and Marvel) superheroes, we always make sure that we watch the live action films on the big screen (with our daughters) when there’s one showing.
We’ve known for months now when Wonder Woman would hit the Philippine cinemas, thanks to a certain lifestyle mobile app and the Internet, and I have calendared it as soon as we confirmed the date. The mister even bought me a Wonder Woman shirt last year in preparation for the big day. Hence, the disappointment I had for not being able to watch it on the exact day I’ve written down on my organizer.
Unfortunately, there were simply so many things that required my attention and I could not afford to drag my daughters in the middle of the week while they were preparing for something more important, such as the OLSAT and Disney Premiere audition, not to mention I had errands to attend myself too. We simply had to wait for the perfect timing then and I’m glad we did, for some of my wonder friends were even able to join us this afternoon, which made watching the movie much more fun! And, my takeaway from the movie? You can’t save everyone, so don’t be discouraged…
reading 3 Weeks to an Organized Homeschool by Katherine Leigh, along with Debora M. Coty’s Too Blessed to be Stressed. The latter serves as my current devotional, whereas the former serves as a guide to make our next homeschool year more productive for everyone and keep me sane. *fingers crossed*
writing down my thoughts on a lot of things that my family and I have been dealing with lately. There’s just too much of them, it seems, that sometimes, I feel like I can no longer catch up even with my own self. Writing them on my journal, however, helps me process these thoughts, understand myself better, and help me respond better to situations too.
listening to the sound coming from the TV program my youngest daughter’s watching. Weekend nights are movie nights, in which we would choose a movie to watch online or on DVD. However, since we watched Wonder Woman this afternoon and I really loved the film, I am not prepared to be disappointed by a movie that’s not as good or has characters not as charming as Princess Diana (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine).
thinking of a certain teenage girl that needs help and how our family, especially my eldest daughter, could help her. She happens to be one of teen’s close friends in 5th and 6th grade at her former school. Apparently, the girl came from a broken family, lives with her mom’s relatives, and now has to deal with her pregnancy alone. Disowned by her relatives, my heart aches for this child, but I’m not sure how we could help her except pray for her at the moment. I guess I will just have to listen to my Wonder Woman instincts, at the same time, remind myself that I cannot save everyone, in case things don’t turn out to be a happy ending for everyone.
