Just a Spoon Full of Sugar…

Mary Poppins

It’s hard for me to describe all of the intricacies of why I LOVE Mary Poppins.  There’s the way she makes everything no big deal.  There’s the way she turns everything around so children and adults alike don’t know which way is up.  There’s the HAPPY HAPPY music.  And there are the phrases from the songs:

  • Just A Spoon Full of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down
  • Feed the Birds, Tuppence a Bag
  • I Love To Laugh
  • Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (Expialidocious – fragi-cali-rubus – that’s Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards)
  • Today I’m a Screever
  • Sister Suffragette

What is NOT to like about all of that?

I recently watched Saving Mr. Banks and it brought me back to so many of the things I love about Mary Poppins. But what it really reminded me of was how I used to have the CD for Mary Poppins in my minivan when I was going through all of the YUCKIES of my “pre-divorce”.  No matter what was going on in my life, no matter how sad I was, I could put on Mary Poppins and step outside of my “SHIT”.

So go rent or watch Mary Poppins. For fun check out Saving Mr. Banks and LASTLY – buy the Mary Poppins soundtrack.  It’s THE BEST!

So here’s a little lift for your week.

Happy WEEK!
