Ok - I am now in love with Sandra Bullock. See? There I go - falling in love, yet again! (Come ON - I can think of worse things!) Please, please listen to her Academy Award acceptance speech. She is funny and passionate and it blows me away how smoothly she executed that speech. It felt completely spontaneous and from her heart. Blindside is definitely the next movie on my list. This speech spoke to me like no other, ever.
What the hell is Joey talking about now, you say? Well, if you follow my blog, you may have guessed that my life's struggle is mothering my adopted child. In this speech, Sandra Bullock touched my soul and won my heart forever. When she said,
"I would like to thank what this film is about for me, which are the moms that take care of the babies and the children, no matter where they come from. Those moms and parents never get thanked."
I totally lost it. I'm pretty sure I don't need to explain why. Just know, she completely gets me. So, from the bottom of my heart, Sandra Bullock - thank you.
