Day 117, Reason 117: Today I am excited to watch Les Misérables and even more thrilled about how the DVD came to me.
Two evenings ago, I was watching TV when an advert came on for the DVD release of the film, Les Misérables. I have never seen the musical and, to be honest, I’ve always been a little put off by the less than cheerful title.
However, I have been longing to see the film since I first saw the spectacular trailer before its release in the cinema. It looked so powerful, dramatic and impressive and gave me goose bumps of anticipation. Plus, amongst the cast are some of my favourite actors and actresses. I just had to see it, and I made my Mum promise to go to the cinema with me, even though it’s one of her least favourite activities!
But, then unfortunately, I was too ill to venture out of the house, and as the weeks ticked by it looked like I might miss out on watching a screening. Finally, when I began to feel a little better, I heard the sad news that our cinema had been closed down. My Les Mis experience just didn’t look like it was going to happen.
So, when I saw the advert for the release of the DVD this weekend, I said to my Mum how much I still really wanted to see it, and wouldn’t it be great if someone had the DVD to lend to me.
This afternoon, I was trying (unsuccessfully) to catch up on some much needed sleep, after a rubbish night, when the postman knocked on the door with a parcel for my Mum. Inside was a birthday present for her from her good friend. Mum’s birthday isn’t until the end of June, but the present had a note on it to say “open it now and enjoy!”
Yep, you’ve guessed it, inside was the DVD of Les Misérables! Thank you Universe…and my Mum’s friend (who knew nothing about my wish!) 🙂
