It's supposed to be an early spring. Yay. My birthday was a fun a busy day! It started out early, as Brooks has basketball at 8:30am. The game (I forgot camera) was hilarious, as always. Brian was laughing so hard. They have moments of brilliance and moments of awful, and its just so cute!
After basketball - I got a great gift from my husband and friends - A day "out"! He stayed home with the kids, and me and a few friends went and saw a matinee showing of Les Miserable, and then a late lunch/early dinner together. The movie is incredibly impacting and wonderful all around, the music has been stuck in my head for 2 days now.
After coming home, Lauren (sis in law) and Chae (friend) surprised me with a wonderful birthday cake they made. It was sooooo good!!
Here a few songs I cannot get out of my head. This movie is HIGHLY recommended by me:-)
This is "On My Own" sung by Eponine's character
The song of Angry Men has always been a favourite of mine, going back to about 1999, and hearing my roommates CD of the soundtrack of the broadway play. Here it is, I can't embed it...
And before the song Do You Hear The People Sing, there is the call to battle - It's Red - the blood of angry men, and Black - the dark of ages past.
There are soooo many songs that grip you as the story goes on. Naturally, the I Dreamed a Dream one is something to be seen, but I feel like sharing it out of the context of the movie does it an injustice.
It is a story of Redemption that is truly inspiring.
A great song for a birthday, really - One Day More!
