God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Well, I took Sunday off from blogging, and it was good. I was still exhausted from the yard sale on Saturday. I'm still a bit tired today, so while the baby is napping, I turned on Netflix. I decided to watch something I'd been wanting to see for awhile. I had put it off for some reason, and now I think I know why. I didn't want to face reality. I chose to watch the documentary "Super Size Me." I've heard about it for several years but never had an opportunity to watch it. Quite frankly, I thought the guy, Morgan Spurlock, was crazy. Why in the world would he eat only McDonalds food for 30 days. I basically thought it was stupid and pointless - until I actually watched it. This movie was so believable and real that it was horrifying! The things I saw were things I knew, deep down, but refused to acknowledge. I don't eat fast food much, but sometimes I do, but it was mostly for budget purposed that I refrained. I will choose other food options now for entirely different reasons. I believe I'll also remove the McDonald's toy cash register and plastic hamburger from my chidlren's collect right now. I wholeheartedly support healthy eating and exercise and moderation, but I never fully understood the reality of the fast food and processed "food" issue, until now.
Please, check this movie out - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390521/ - you won't be sorry! Or, maybe you will be sorry to know the truth, but I want to be around for awhile, don't you???? Aren't our kids worth it!
