I must say I was much happier with the way that Guiding Light ended last year than I was with ATWT's finale this year. ATWT had its finale on September 17th however I just got around to watching it tonight. I just didn't think it was nearly as well planned out as GL's was. I wish they would have maybe flash forwarded a year and shown the future. Regardless, it was still a nice ending and I was thrilled with couples that ended together. My mom's favorite character was Maura West, aka Carly Tenney. Seeing Carly end up with her long time love and ex husband that became her husband again, Jack was very exciting. That couple was meant for each other! I was also so happy to see a happy ending for Terri Colombino aka Katie. All in all, it was happy endings. I guess when shows have grand finales they want it to end on a happy note!
On a side note, yet still soap opera related: Since charity work is a passion of mine, when Guiding Light did a year long special on volunteering with the HandsOn Network, I volunteered at the event that they held in Miami. It was the end of 2007 and that was my first trip to Miami. Here's a few pictures from the event.

HANDS ON MIAMI!
I must bid adieu to the world of Soap Opera's since my favorites have ended. Hopefully I won't get hooked on any new ones.
