Idris Elba Appreciation Day
Has there ever been a man crafted as if he were the definition of Sexy itself?
He is dark, he is handsome, he has a physique to rival David Beckham! Lol - not forgetting he is a super talented television, theatre, film actor and a singer/producer! He also hails from Hackney of West African parentage (Debs, and fellow SL´s stand up)! - he is of course none other than Idris Elba!
Now I know I'm not the only one who appreciates Idris, so I've decided to have an Idris Elba appreciation day -yea!
Ok so the reason I have Idris on my mind is because I´m currently in Trinidad and Tobago and I managed to get myself down to the local Caribbean Cinema to watch ´Takers´ (woo hoo)!
The film was excellent and had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end! Not forgetting to mention the great cast of handsome men (TI, Paul Walker, Michael Ealy, Matt Dillon to name a few of the film eye candy!), it´s definitely a film that the ladies can appreciate even if your not into action, crime & thriller movies!
I think its being released in the UK on 1st October so ladies go see it (and drool -lol!)
And if your wondering why on earth I´m in lovely Trinidad and going cinema... to cut a long story short; what was suppose to be a normal fun filled holiday planned for June had to be rescheduled due to my partner being unable to fly (health issues) and between then and now my partners uncle suddenly passed away.
So we are now in TNT but its under sad circumstances and we are staying with uncle´s family; his mother, brother, wife and children.
I have to say it has been lovely and uncle´s family are (I don´t think coping is the appropriate word) but they are moving, waking, going to school, going to work, moving day by day in a way that has blown me away.
I´ll be honest I kind of felt at first that I was intruding like they have been through so much and here I am coming on ´holiday´ but they have received me graciously even in their time of grief and I think it is a testament to God how they are moving as a family.
I mean yesterday we visited uncle´s grave and whilst I wanted to cry (just thinking about wow she has lost her husband, she has lost her dad, what the...?!), they were talking about uncle with joy, love and respect for the person he was - a son, husband, father & uncle... and as I said in my previous post The BDSS: A heavy one... God has promised 'blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted' (Matthew 5:4).
So I guess what I´m saying is God is good, life is precious, you have to treasure the good times and understand that the Lord does not give you more than you can bear, and when you stand on faith and know that God loves you, well you will be OK... so with that said I wanted to have a fun post, one where we can enjoy and appreciate - hence the ...Idris Elba Appreciation Day! lol
So my lovelies what do you appreciate about Idris, life and love please share...
