This is the toughest one yet. One of my favorite movie genres ( Musicals being number one ) is Superhero movies. That is probably not even a genre but for today’s blog, let’s call it one. 🙂 There is nothing better to me than a superhero coming to the rescue of someone in need. I don’t really have a favorite though.
Spiderman has grown on me over the years. There have been so many versions of them and my boys have loved watching them and playing the video games too. I love his smart alecness ( I don’t think that’s a word but you know what I’m saying….right?). I guess in a way his humor reminds me of the humor we have here at home.
I have always liked Superman. The only one I have seen is Christopher Reeve playing him. As a woman, I love everything about his character; from his shy nerdy look in the office to his humble masculinity as he rescues Lois Lane (over and over again). As a little girl, I always wanted that kind of superman to fly into my life. I think most of us did.
In this day and age, I see a lot of examples of superheroes. I think in some ways, we have all had to be one even if we didn’t see ourselves as one. When we take one more step of courage in depression, pain, or any kind of chronic pain or disease, we are being a superhero. Think of parents fighting through the illnesses of their children. Not only do you have the child fighting you have the parents…fighting for them. How about the addict who is trying to quit? Even though she fails sometimes, she is still trying. How about the more obvious ones, Firefighters, Police Officers, and EMTs. I really could go on and on. There are superheroes all around us. Superheroes inspire ( with or without knowing ); they are fighters when they have to be and lovers when they need to be. They are you and me.
There is a good chance, without you even knowing it my friend, that YOU are someone’s superhero. Have a super duper blessed day! I loves you!
