MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Whenever I get gloomy
with the state of the world,
I think of 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.
And if you look for it,
I've got a sneaking suspicion
that LOVE ACTUALLY
is all around.

~ Love Actually

Merry Christmas Blog friends as I know most of us are too busy to blog properly right now I just want to say... I wish I could show you all this sign:

Yvonne said...

that's a very cute sign... but I think that I might be the ONLY person in the world to hate that movie lol. i think it's because of all of the British knocks on Americans... especially the president/prime minister scene. so not a fan lol

but my fave part is when the little girl sings Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas" she's probably the best singer I've ever heard lol
