“Every Time A Bell Rings…

An angel gets his wings,” says Zuzu Bailey in the movie, It’s A Wonderful Life.

This classic movie starring James Stewart and Donna Reed is one of my favorite holiday movies.  So I created this doodle today in remembrance:

Bell Doodle

I used a bell cookie cutter shape (see yesterday’s post) for my stencil:

Christmas Cookie Bell

I think what I like most about this movie is the message.  Sometimes I don’t feel like I make much of a difference in other people’s lives but the movie reminds me that it is the little things that I do that can have a big impact on other’s lives.  A smile to a stranger, mailing a card to a friend who is sick or perhaps buying a bag of groceries for someone who is hungry.

It isn’t the big expensive gifts that people remember but kindness shown by a stranger.

Cheers Friends!  🙂

  6. Love your bell, Jill! It is wonderful!! And love your words! Little things DO make a difference! 💕😃That is a great movie, though I honestly don’t think I’ve caught it to watch it all the way through in one sitting! 😊(Though I did play George Bailey’s brother in the musical stage version! Lol…that was my last professional show before I stopped acting…the musical version wasn’t the same sadly. Hehe)
