A Mrs Doubtfire Cast Reunion

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

An entire twenty five years have gone by since Robin Williams rocked it as a nanny.  The classic film, Mrs Doubtfire, was released back in 1993, and starred our beloved late comedian.

 

The actors who played his children, Matthew Lawrence as Chris, Mara Wilson as Natalie, and Lisa Jakub as Lydia, are all grown up today.

 

In honor of this special anniversary, the three children from the movie reunited with Pierce Brosnan, who played the mother’s trendy new boyfriend in Mrs Doubtfire.  Sally Field, who played the mother unfortunately couldn’t make it to the reunion, as she’s on a book tour for her new memoir.

 

Robins absence was also of course noticed, and left an underlying sadness. Nonetheless, it was still an epic reunion that had Twitter users going crazy.
