Weekend Tune Up

I’m looking forward to this weekend for two reasons.

First, Saturday is my birthday, and my Daniel and I have FUN planned. I thank my mother and father for being wonderful parents, and my Heavenly Father for giving me such an abundant and full life.

Second, the OSCARS are Sunday night! I’ve got favorites I’ll be rooting for, probably loudly and anxiously. Thank God I live in Mountain Time so I can watch it all without worrying about getting enough sleep on a work night. I’d watch it anyway, but I’m thankful nonetheless.

Anyway, this Weekend Tune Up highlights my pick for Best Picture – and everything else it is nominated for – The King’s Speech, the best movie I’ve seen in a long, long time. The soundtrack is done by a recent favorite, Alexandre Desplat, the composer of the beautiful Twilight Saga New Moon music.

This is just a short, uplifting, hopefully inspiring-you-to-see-the-movie clip from The King’s Speech soundtrack.

Enjoy, and have a blessed weekend!
