–Up…A Life Together (11/16/18)

The film Up centers on an elderly widower named Carl Fredricksen and an earnest young Wilderness Explorer named Russell who fly to South America in a house suspended by helium balloons. –Wikipedia

In the marriage montage from the movie Up, we see the married life of Carl and Ellie played out in a series of moments from their life together.  Ultimately, Carl is alone and must live his life without Ellie.  In this time of Thanksgiving, what does this say about living a life thankful for those in our lives, being committed to them, and loving them for who they are, no matter the faults they may have? How committed are you to the special people in your life?  Are you a constant in the lives of those you care about?  Do you walk side-by-side with those you love, even when it’s not easy, or do you walk away from them?  Who are you thankful for in your life?
