If You Just Believe

I spent last Saturday night babysitting some super sweet kiddos. After we had played, the little girl, I will call her “princess”, wanted to watch The Polar Express, YES! Seeing as how I can quote line by line most kid movies, I was amazed that I have not yet seen this one. Any movie with a song by Josh Groban should be enough for me to rush out and buy it for myself. He seriously sings like an angel, but that is for another time. I was so glad I had a chance to catch it.

In fact, I was more excited that “princess girl”! I fell in love with this movie. In this day in age where movies like Shrek have such unkid-friendly (yes, I am aware this is not a word – but this is my world) themes and jokes I was surprised that this one was so enjoyable. I did enjoy Shrek but I am a grown adult. I would not want my young children watching most of those things in that movie. Anyway, I had a few great quotes from the movie which I think should get some recognition. Think about them, they may be from a kid’s movie, but they are for the big kids too.

“The thing about trains… it doesn’t matter where they’re going. What matters is deciding to get on.”

That is so true, sometimes we don’t need to be for certain where we are going in life, in relationships, in our careers. Sometimes we just need to jump on board full force, no holds bar, all on faith. Most likely, the journey will take you to somewhere magical.

And my favorite one yet:

“Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see.”

So true, I could not even begin to name them all. Love, friendship, laughter and faith are just a few of my favorites.

Good Job Tom Hanks.
