Today's challenge is to post a picture of the cast of your favorite show. This actually was a challenge, in a way. It seemed easy, but ended up being a little tricky for me -- but I figured out a way to do it perfectly. My first thought was, "Is this supposed to be my all time favorite show or my current favorite show?" Then, as I thought about the two I realized that my all time favorite show and my current favorite show have a simlilarity -- that similarity sort of makes this challenge a bit more fun for me!
And, very quickly, let me talk about my current favorite show. I had heard about a new show called Parenthood but didn't think anything of it. Jacob and I have a hard enough time keeping up with our shows and I didn't know how we could we possibly add another one. I noticed people on Facebook and other places talking about how great it was -- and curiosity got the better of me. We added it to the DVR and watched it. I watched it and I loved it. I was pleasantly surprised that Lauren Graham, who I loved as Lorelai on Gilmore Girls, was one of the cast members in Parenthood. I found that the son, Adam, and his family was a lot like our family. Adam has a job that stresses him out and tends to make him feel miserable and overwhelmed sometimes. It reminded my husband and me of his job. The mom is a stay-at-home mom, which I can relate to, and their son, Max, has Asperger Syndrome and they go through their days trying to deal with it. This hit close to home for me because I remember watching it and thinking, "Yes, I understand!" because we are trying to deal with all the things going on with our oldest son. It is just a show that I really enjoy and I can relate to it -- it serves as a reminder that we're not alone and other families are going through life the same way we are!
Oh, and thank you, Lauren Graham, for keeping me so entertained! I appreciate it!
