Make way for Meryl Streep!

Now that is a speech!

She hooks people with sensible sense of humor in the beginning and ends it with a stake in the heart. After hearing her end the speech with a short yet powerful statement of “Take your broken heart into arts.”, I couldn’t help but get moved.

My husband’s family wass hanging out in our room so I quickly made an escape in the bathroom to hide my welling eyes after watching this. But my two year old daughter, Brave, was in the bathroom doing her business so I had no choice. So when I sat down to give myself time to swallow the message, I ducked my head in between my folded arms to get a grip. And Brave got worried.

Brave: Owwhhhh nooo…. crying. Mommy’s crying.

Me: No babe, I’m not. (still ducked)

Brave: Mommy, crying, why?

Me: Sssshhh!!!

Brave: Are you ok? Is Daddy mad?

Me: Brave, ssshhhh!!! (I was worried because my husband might hear her.) Daddy is not mad, daddy loves me. How did you get so smart?

Brave: Yiiiieeeessss!!! (….sounding like affirmative and giving a judgemental nonverbal arch of the eyebrows saying: how come you still cry if he loves you?)

And then I laughed because she was sincerely worried. I explained to her that I watched something touching. I watched somebody talk about equality with no filter and was plain truth. It was overwhelming.

Only Meryl Streep has this power of combining elegance with sarcasm and sense of humor. I love her.

I have a deep regard for your time. It's when I write and cook that time becomes non-existent. I love learning and while you think I am the kind of lady who has a lot of things to say, just take it that I was sharing what I had learned with full impact over a cup of Joe.
