While the world was rearing its ugly face at me, I got a call from a very long-lost friend. It’s been more than a decade since I last saw her. The best part: I’m seeing her tomorrow!
My husband is on his way home from a business trip abroad! Can anything be more wonderful than that?
I’m reminded of a quote from Love Actually (photo below is screen grabbed from the movie’s opening scene):
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.
