p.s. Last night, I re-watched “Instructions Not Included,” a drama film/comedy by director Eugenio Derbez. It was a great movie about a variety of things including the struggle of being a single parent, attempting to be bilingual, and trying to keep the small family united. Thus, I took the title and worked around what I believe cannot be learned by a manual, but more though experience, faith and repetition. So, to living a life where instructions are often not included!
p.s.s. Please watch the movie, though the ending is a surprise, yet expected, and in some ways, disappointing but realistic. Wow. Lots of stuff.
