"Strange, isn't it?
Each one's life touches so many other lives.
When one isn't around it leaves an awful hole, doesn't it?"
Clarence The Angel , It's a Wonderful Life
There's no doubt that It's a Wonderful Life is one of today's most popular Christmas films.
It's a Wonderful Life has earned its legion of followers because it effectively touches upon one basic truth of life that we all
would like to believe -- that each of us, no matter how apparently insignificant, has the power to make a difference, and that the
measure of our humanity has nothing to do with fame or money, but with how we live our life on a day-to-day basis.
It's a Wonderful Life asks and answers a question that all of us think of at one time or another:
"What would this world be like if I had never been born?"
There's no doubt that It's a Wonderful Life is a "feel good" movie.
In fact, at the time of its initial release, it was dubbed "Capra-corn" (the director being the famous Frank Capra) but it offers a timeless story with a universal message.
It's a Wonderful Life also reminds us of the film's kinship with Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
In both stories, the visions supplied by supernatural beings convince their subjects of the value of life and the importance of the
contribution of the individual.
Despite the apparent difference in the nature of each story's protagonist, both popular Christmas tales strike similar chords with audiences.
Watching It's a Wonderful Life is truly an enriching experience.
And remember, dear friends, all our lives are woven together and each of us is a thread in another person's tapestry.
~ Love and Hugs To You All ~

Thank you Mina, and a very wonderful life for you! You touched the existential basis of all of our lives, to love and give of ourselves. And all that matters in what we receive is the same, to be loved by and to receive others. Thank you for your gift of love in the words you wrote. In deed, it is a wonderful life, and you make it better. Hugs and love, dear Mina!
