The Christmas Cottage

Artwork "Silent Night" by Thomas Kinkade

Our Here’s to Us moment #1 is an entire post – it was that good! Not all of our moments will warrant an entire post – some may only show up on our Facebook page. But what a perfect way to start off our monthly challenge. In case you missed it – you can read about it HERE.

I don’t know how we missed this movie which was released in 2008, but in case you missed it too, we have to tell you about it.

It is titled, The Christmas Cottage, and tells the true story of Thomas Kinkade, America’s Painter of Light.

We don’t want to spoil the story for you, but if you have Netflix – you’ll find it available as an Instant movie. This would be a great stay-at-home date night to enjoy together. Once you watch it, we have one question we would love for you to answer,

“Who is your Glenn?”

We were both so affected at the end of the movie by this question we couldn’t talk. Our hearts were flooded with gratefulness for the influence “our Glenn” has had on us. Oh they’re not the same person – Debi has hers and I have mine. And tonight at a church meeting we made sure we spoke once again to them thanking them for the way their lives have impacted ours.

This movie will become a new Christmas favorite for us. And who knows? We may end up displaying one of his works in our home.

Below is the trailer to whet your appetite:
