Thankful Thursday ~ February 2

Today is February 2, Groundhog Day.  It may be trivial, but today I am thankful for movies :)

Of course I'm thinking of Groundhog Day, with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.  Movies technically are a waste of time, for the most part.  But they can also be a great way to get a much-needed laugh (I'm remembering how Rat Race really helped me on one of my worst days ever), and I've even been known to use movies (like Beaches) for a much-needed cry.  Movies can also be a way to help us appreciate great literature, such as Shakespeare and Tolkien and Jane Austen.

What is one of your favorite movies, and why are you thankful for it?
