Since I was little, I've always adored Judy Garland. That voice. Those warm eyes. That combination of strength and vulnerability that she resonated.
I always thought Judy was pretty, it made me sad years later when I learned she didn't see herself like that.
The weekends were the best time to catch a Judy Garland movie on channel 7 or 13. It would make my day shine brighter. When my friends would ring to go outside, sometimes I say my mom wanted me to stay upstairs. Really, a Judy movie was coming on and I didn't want to miss it. Who could blame me?
Happy Birthday, Judy. Thank you for making my days happier with your movies and music.
P.S. Here is a list of my favorite movies by Judy.
