"...When hopes soar, and thoughts flutter... .....sometimes they land on a blog..."

One of my favorite movie quotes is from Forrest Gump. It is not one of the popular ones, but I think it is a great one. It comes from the scene when Jenny is in front of the old house that she grew up with so much abuse in. There she stands faced with all the resentment and suffering of that time in her life and, how it affected her whole adulthood. She reaches down in agony, and picks up a rock that she just starts throwing. One by one, she keeps pitching, getting more and more distraught, until she just can't see another rock to toss. She just drops to the ground sobbing. Then Forrest comes to her side in awe, and just simply consoles her with, "Sometimes, there's just not enough rocks." I think it is a brilliant part of the movie. In our lives sometimes we just have to stop throwing the rocks, let go, cry, and last but not least, FORGIVE. Whether we have gone through something so destructive or not, I think we can all relate and learn from this one. I know I can.
