Most of you know from my recent Faithful Friday's post, that I went on vacation for Spring Break to my Aunt Betty and Uncle Richard's house. I will tell about that later on another post.
Anyway, for the book/movie part of this post, I have seen all three versions of Little Women, by Lousia May Alcott. She is my favorite author, and I read a biography on Louisa called Louisa May Alcott, Girl of Old Boston, and it inspired me to start writing a book...but...ANYWAY...I LOVE "Little Women", and I like the newest version with Winona Ryder as "Jo", and Kirsten Dunst as "Beth", best. What's your favorite version? Well, the other day, mom and I were just saying we wanted to buy the newest version of it, and we went to a consignmnent store close to my Grandmamma's doctor. We walked in the door, and I said, "MOMMA!!!!!" "LOOK!" "LITTLE WOMEN!!!" "YAY!" "CAN WE BUY IT?"
Mom: "Yay!" "Well, hold onto it, and we might buy it."
Me(thinking)Yep....we're going to get it.
And we did.
I just want to share some of the many things that I LOVE about Little Women!!!!
I love that Jo is like me. She can be a girly girl, and she can be a tomboy. Louisa was like that, too. Beth is sooo sweet. I just wish she didn't have to get sick and all. And I think the newest version of the movie has more story to it. It tells more than the other two versions. Louisa modeled all the characters after her family. I know Louisa was "Jo". Anna, her sister, the oldest and most proper, was "Meg". Elizabeth, the sweet, small, 3rd oldest girl, was most likely "Beth", and, even though she wasn't as snotty as the movie makes her out to be, Abba May, the youngest, was "Amy". The book also has WONDERFUL illustrations!!!
I have a few prayer requests. I would like for you to pray for my cousin, Josh, that he would get saved. I don't know what it is about him that sparks my curiosity, but, he's kinda the "punk" kind. And....I just really want him to get saved. Also, please pray for Kandi, Ms. KatherineEllen's daughter. Please also pray for Ms. Lea's son, Jase. He is having some heart problems, so, let's just pray he'll be alright. She also hasn't posted in awhile, so, please pray everything's alright. And pray for Ms. Donna and her husband. They really want to get a job, and everybody knows times are tough. One more thing. Mrs. Anne asked everyone to pray for her son, Samuel, when he gets his root canal.
Well, mom, dad, and I are getting ready to watch Sarah: Plain and Tall, so, I'll go now. I'll tell you how it is!!!
Love, Joy =D
