Mr. Rogers

My mom has been wanting to see the new movie, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”, and today we were able to make it happen. The movie itself was – in my opinion – very well done. It has been a long time since I have seen such a positive story of loving kindness. Without giving too many details, I loved how it transitioned from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood to real life until you could not tell where one started and the other left off. I heard from other people that they were teary eyed at certain points, and sure enough, my mom and I passed the tissues. Mr. Rogers lived in the present moment, giving all his attention to who was right in front of him. He “lived intentionally” before it became a thing we are supposed to strive for. Another theme that came to light was Mr. Rogers’ faith and prayer life. I left that movie not only wanting to be a better, kinder, and more gentle person, but believing that I actually can be.

I Found God today in a story of unprecedented kindness.
