The Eighth Day of Christmastide – New Year’s Day
I had a day off because it was a holiday. That’s pretty much all I need to say. Working as a trauma chaplain for six and a half months without a day off wears one down. It’s part of the probationary period. I am running on fumes now and doing what i can to sustain my work for another week. The day off didn’t make too much of a difference in my rest because I didn’t get any rest this past weekend. i traveled home for a quick Christmas. I did what I could to see my family and they did what they could in return. It was quick and i am tried. So having yesterday to sleep in helped. Don’t worry. I finally get to have some time off in a couple of weeks.
On this 8th Day, I also treated myself to the movies. I went to the movies a lot back home. Since being in Greenville, I’ve only been twice – counting yesterday. I needed something fun and simple, that didn’t require too much thinking on my part. Friends recommended the Disney movie “Frozen”. It was a great Disney movie, with one big exception – the role of the HERO was NOT played by a PRINCE, not by a GUY!! How totally against the Disney norm is that????!!!! The movie is about two sisters, (which I desperately wish I had one of them) and I can say this without giving anything away, but THEY are the heros. It’s a refreshing change to see in the Disney films!
What i didn’t anticipate was the fact that I had to do some thinking. There were parts in the film that resonated with me in ways i wasn’t expecting. I am going to be vague right now about it because I am still contemplating what I witnessed and how it pierced straight into my heart like an icicle. Just know it is a great movie for all ages.
All i will say right now is you need to see it, especially if you are a girl, especially with sisters, especially well……just see it. Until then, see the trailer below.
