Love Actually Is All Around

Clearly I've gotten the hang of maternity leave.

I am completely and indulgently basking in the glow of favorite movies and a lit up Christmas tree, nursing a cuddly baby and sipping tea.

"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 suspision love actually is all around."

*sigh*

Hi Amy, How are you? Congratulations on your little daughter. She is beautiful. I am sorry I never got a chance to see you before I left NY. My life was in serious up-heavel; things are much better now but I am sad to say, on my own without a husband. Everything works out in the end and I know these things are headed in the right direction.
Thanks for accepting my thoughts on how our love goes on. I know sometimes all we can do is have the faith that those we love are always there, even when we don't see them. Anyways, know that I am one of those people too :). I know you can understand the message I was trying to convey. HOPE! We must always have that brightness of HOPE and I know you do.
If we ever come back to NY, I'd love to see you again and if you are ever in Utah, let me know, you are always welcomed at our home. luvs,
