Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:


Momma: You're my knight in shimmering armor. 
Did you know that? 
Gilbert: I think you mean shining. 
Momma: No shimmering. 
You shimmer, and you glow. 

Twenty-four years have passed since this movie came out and I honestly quote these lines from this speech all the time. I found Darlene Cates' performance in this film tremendously moving, and so today's news that the actress has passed at the age of 69 has actually got me tearing up here at my desk. I hope she knew how much goodness (how much shimmer and glow) that performance put into the world, and how much we all appreciated it. This movie is available on Amazon Prime - we should all stop what we're doing and watch it right now.
