Loves Of A Lifetime
Good morning, GHers.
So much has happened this week, that I could base a telenovela on our lives. My hubby was hurt at work on Tuesday and needed to see one doctor after another this week, we had a family we know go through a terrible crisis, and I am preparing for the possibility of being part of a very painful, but very important lawsuit that would be all about taking a stand against sexual abuse and the cover-ups that happen afterward all too often. I really need your prayers and good thoughts, because I am already dealing with some pretty serious anxiety and panic attacks, and we are weeks away from finding out if it will actually end up in court.
Anyhoo…I finally got to sit in bed last night with my laptop and earphones to watch the week’s GH. It just so happened that the one day there was nothing going on in this family, ABC pre-empted GH in order to show the Columbus Day Parade in NYC. -_____-
What a week it’s been in Port Charles, huh?
From Luke coming home to Duke coming back from the dead…it has been like taking a trip back to the ’80s. I have to admit that I was a little swept up in the flashbacks of the Duke and Anna from back then. I have always said that flashbacks (from way back when in GH’s rich and fabulous history – NOT incessant flashbacks of what happened that week) have the ability to tug at our heartstrings like little else can. I also think that for the viewers who have joined GH in most recent years, it’s a great way to show them what the fuss over Duke is all about, and may even encourage them to look up some old scenes.
I found that the head writer I will never forgive for the past year may actually have scored a very small point with me in having all this talk onscreen about Loves of a Lifetime. Duke and Anna, Luke and Laura.
And they aren’t just talking about Loves of a Lifetime. They are showing them in action and in the present in Jason and Sam. I have been very satisfied to see that the story about our missing baby has centered on Jason and Sam, and their dealing with it together. The jerk responsible for tearing our JaSam Dream apart this past year also earned a point with me in that Jason was the one to insist that Sam’s baby might actually be alive, and that he was the one to set things in motion to bring him home. Had it been McBain, I may have lost it.
I also am grateful that in Steve’s last couple of weeks onscreen, he has been all about his wife, and his Love of a Lifetime: Samantha McCall-Morgan. In fact, it has been quite obvious that as far as Jason is concerned, there is no other woman who could ever compare. (*cough, Cough* Liz) If Jason had to leave, I am grateful that he leaves behind no doubt about the woman he chose – the woman he loves more than anything or anyone. Sam was more important than Sonny, than Carly, and Michael, even in the midst of their falling-to-pieces lives. I have waited a long time to see that, and I am glad that I got to see it before Jason disappears from all of our lives.
Watching Jason and Sam bond over the pictures of their son, and watching Jason be there for Sam at every moment has been long overdue, and those moments have melted my heart. Truly, it has been The Beauty of GH for me. Every little thing has made me ache for the moment Jason and Sam hold their son together and take him home as a family. If only all of this had played out long before Steve made the decision to move to TN. *sigh*
I will say that the supporting roles so much of the canvas has had in this storyline has been great – it proves that they seem to get that it doesn’t have to be a wedding or a funeral to get the entire cast involved in something. Isn’t that what happens in a small town like PC?
I am looking forward to today’s GH with more excitement than I’ve felt in a very long time. I am hoping that we get the moments we’ve been holding our breath for sooner, rather than later, but just knowing that we’ll all be sharing it together brings me incredible joy. You guys are an important part of my life, and there’s just no other way to watch GH now.
See you on Sunday morning!
Love you all,
