Storyline

Released from jail after a term basically served instead of friends he refused to rat out, Charles 'Skip' Cuddy is grateful his gentleman instinct gets him a job with living quarters as handyman on a semi-destitute estate Blessings. Working hard, he wins further confidence from the owner, bitter widow Lydia Blessing, unlike her in-living bitch nurse Jennifer. When a baby is left at the state, Skip takes it in and secretly cares for it. Lydia eventually finds out but sides with him, feeling robbed of grandchildren by her careerist only daughter Meredith. Then Skip's past comes knocking, and the baby's birth parents. Written by KGF Vissers

Wonderful & Touching Story to Say the Lease!
22 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I really did enjoy "Blessings". It is extremely touching to say the lease. The well picked cast of Mary Tyler Moore, Liam Waite (Ralph Waite's son of The Waltons), and Kathleen Quinlan make the entire story come alive. The film is family orientated and would be great to view as a family during the Christmas Holiday Season. The characters become one as a family and mutual love is expressed to each other to help them become closer. Often times we don't see what is on the inside unless we see what is on the outside first. This is such a movie. Life teaches all sorts of lessons to help us learn from one another. It is a moving experience in loving your neighbor and learning how to be kinder to one another. I have tried to locate this little gem, but haven't had any luck whatsoever. You can be sure if it comes on again, I will definitely have my VCR ready to record.
