Love actually is. . .

I'm indulging myself this Christmas eve morning with cheesy Christmas love stories (think The Holiday and Love Actually). I did, however, have to crank up the television a little higher than normal to hear it over the drone of every single snow blower in the neighborhood and curl up with a extra blanket. Nevertheless, I had a good Christmas cry this morning.

"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion love actually is all around."
-----Love Actually

Here's to hoping you have a holiday filled with love.
(And, please, if you have a favorite cheesy Christmas love movie, let me know! I've got a long vacation coming up!)
