Chloe asked me watch Pride & Prejudice with her this evening.
And she knows she doesn't have to ask twice. I have seen that movie too many/not enough times.
It is her personal favorite. I am more inclined to say, my favorite is Sense & Sensability.
Still the point is, it is amazing at how irritating Elizabeth's mother could be. Oh my. So often I would say out loud, can you please stop talking?? To which Chloe would comment, " She can't hear you , mom".
Tonight, it made me take stock of my life. Am I a busy body? Am I a ridiculous talker. Where on earth are my priorities? And I a blessing? To my children? To my husband? To my King?
This is the first time when watching, it made me reflect back to myself. Mind you, she has always irritated me. Just in the past, I would focus on Elizabeth's attitude of honoring her mother inspite of herself. Admirable, truly.
But tonight, I thought, HEY, I'm a mom. Am I like that??!?!??!?
Oh Precious Jesus, make my speech be beautiful. May the words of my mouth ( or lack there of) glorify You.
I'm glad I watched the movie tonight.
BTW, Chloe feel asleep at one point. But don't worry, I woke her up for the good parts. :)
