My favorite holiday movie, and close to my favorite all-time movie, starring the amazing Jimmy Stewart, is "It's A Wonderful Life." When I was young, on Christmas Eve, after a wonderful dinner, desserts, and present openings at my Aunt Ionia's home, we would come home to watch "It's A Wonderful Life." Watching this movie is a family tradition in our home too. My husband, who LOVES this movie, had never seen it until we were dating and I introduced it to him at Christmas.
I have been told that it is a "goody-goodie" movie! Well, I must love "goodie-goodie" movies! "It's a Wonderful Life" is the story of a man, George Bailey, who had big plans in his life to travel and be educated.
George is never quite able to achieve his big dreams and when he hits bottom, he feels like his life is not worth living. Clarence, his Guardian Angel, allows George glimpses of what life would be like if George would have never been born.
Clarence, George's Gardian Angel
This movie affirms the impact that we can have, and often don't see, on the life of others. George learns that he really did have "A Wonderful Life!"
I hope you will join me as we celebrate our "Wonderful Lives" this holiday season.

Today's Thanksgiving Challenge
I am very thankful for all the kind people, including those on blogland, who have made my life more wonderful! I am thankful for those who gave an extra smile, an encouraging word, and included me in their circle of friends! I am intrigued by those friends who come in your life in a specific season and are like guardian angels. Although Clarence may not be my "guardian angel, " I do believe that the heavens are open and there are those that are caring for us and watching over us.
