But when one of those reasons is seeing an angel turn 50, I need to take time out and wish her well.
I owe Roma Downey at least that much (actually, way more ... but that's another story for another day).
Having had the great pleasure (er, let's call it honor) of interviewing Roma last year for PTR, it confirmed for me what we here already know: there are certain actors who are timeless, and there are certain shows that are timeless. We owe them as much reverence in hindsight as we did during their prime.
Not surprisingly, Roma remains at the top of that list for us, as does her legendary portrayal of Monica the Angel on the phenomenon that was (and still is) Touched By An Angel.
As she celebrates a milestone birthday today, I break from hiatus to send her our best wishes for continued health and happiness in the coming year.
Happy Birthday Roma!

And if you're missing Roma these days, tune into Hallmark Channel to catch re-runs of Touched By An Angel (though be prepared for sudden channel lineup changes that seem to put TBAA on a "break"); or, your can visit her official Web site and join her official Facebook page (both run by the lovely Ms. Anna K, long time Webmaster of Roma's official site and friend here to PTR).
