My Thoughts:

Since I was a little girl I have loved Michael Landon JR as an actor.  I am greatly enjoying his work as a director as well!  Movies with true content are rare these days and I’m glad to say I’m starting to see a few more of them!

So many movies these days are filled with trash or just don’t have a good story, it is wonderful to say that this one isn’t plagued with that issue!  I hope you’ll take the time to see it, you won’t regret it!

It is certainly a heartwarming, wonderful film for a great night of relaxing!
