One Day Just Like Another?

I realized recently that my life resembles a movie. Nothing super exciting like National Treasure, Pirates of the Caribbean or even The Incredibles. No, the art that my life imitates is the illustrious film, Groundhog Day. In this 1993 flick, Bill Murray plays Phil, an arrogant weatherman on location in Punxsutawney , PA , covering the famous appearance of the groundhog who predicts the weather.

In his excessive pride, Phil believes he is destined for greatness, certainly not willing to condescend to the likes of groundhog fans. In a strange turn of events, he wakes up day after day to find that it is still February 2. Initially he bucks this nightmarish experience, attempting suicide several times over only to find himself waking up to live that same day all over again. (All of this is achieved in the classic Bill Murray style, and you are sure to chuckle, if not roll on the floor laughing.)

I watched this film last winter and realized that like Phil experiences, every day of my life is a lot like the one before.

After all, I am a mom….
