Blind-side: to catch unaware
Watched the movie twice already and the messages are powerful. There are times in our life when we are blindsided by an event or happening. I can relate. That is how I felt when mom came for a visit, had her stroke and we became her caretakers.
Sandra Bullock did a great job portraying a woman who in my terms “walked the walk”. Her family reached out to a young man who had no one and made him a genuine member of their family. It had a real fairy tale ending.
My fairy tale ending would be that my mom would wake up and be happy to live in Sunny Florida. She would be happy to have a nice room, three cooked meals and people who take care of her and love her. But then I would really be blind-sided.
