I’m thankful for Marsha’s friendship. Last week we planned to have lunch at my house since I am trying to save money. Marsha, being a wonderful friend she is, had no problem coming over to help me save money. On Tuesday, she texted me and asked if I ever saw Dead Poets Society, I had not and she planned to bring it. I made chicken salad sandwiches and GF short cake for lunch. I also bought some euculyptis and baby breath from Trader Joe’s and made a lovely bouquet.
Yesterday afternoon we had a lovely lunch, caught up, and watched the Dead Poets Society. We both cried at the end; it was a good movie otherwise and made me think about why I started the Happiness Box Project. Seize the Day – Carpe Diem! We all eke out happiness each day and try something new, even if we are scared. I believe this was Robin Williams’s magnum opus.
We are going to plan another movie Sunday in the future. We both had a great time and we want to see each other more instead of every 6-8 months.

Hi, Jessica Marie!
I certainly remember your longtime friend Marsha from other posts about her over the years. I think the two of you have come up with a great idea in having a movie Sunday every few months. Around 1980 I had a female “movie buddy,” a totally platonic friendship, just two horror and sci-fi loving people who got together once or twice a month and went to see genre films at the theater and afterward had dinner and discussed the movie. It was lots of fun and a refreshingly different kind of male-female relationship.
Looks like you had a lovely table setting for Marsha and a great lunch. Mrs. Shady and I love Dead Poet’s Society and agree it is one of Robin Williams’ greatest performances. Robin was best known for his zany humor, but I always appreciated him more in the role of a serious, sensitive character like the one he played in DPS. I also recommend the scary 2002 film One Hour Photo, another project in which Robin was cast against-type.
Have a great day and week, dear friend JM!
