Have you all been watching Call the Midwives?
Last weeks episode had me in tears...as usual.
"It is a mysterious place, the land of tears."
That quote, as you probably know is from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
Sunday night a father was reading from The Little Prince on Call the Midwives; this is the portion the dad was reading,
You-you alone will have the stars as no one else has them...In one of he stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars are laughing when you look at the sky at night,,,You-oniy you - will have the stars that can laugh.Isn't that so beautiful?
And then the teen son of the Dr was sitting on the floor playing with his little sister. The young son had 'tricked' his father into quitting smoking. (and his mother too) The mom said she was going to get fat from all the cookies she was now eating and she joked to her son that she was going to need his money to buy new clothing.
He said, " You can have everything I have. You are my world."
In our world of sadness and woe...
The innocence and sweetness that is portrayed on Call the Midwives touches me so.
And now that they are in the 60's....the music continues to change and be amazing!!!
Thanks BBC for making a sweet show!
