Love Actually


Friday night I wandered into the living room, plopped down in front of the TV and started to channel surf.  And much to my surprise and delight 'Love Actually' was on.

A favorite.  I saw it in the theater and have seen it on DVD a couple times.  And every time I watch it I 'notice' a new relationship.   Another example of love.  

The opening is Hugh Grants voice and shows the arrivals gate at the airport.  People hugging and kissing and happy to see loved ones.  The last line he speaks before the movie starts is this.

"If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is....all around."

How true and yet how easy is it to close our hearts and minds to it.  If you haven't seen it.  Make a pot of hot cocoa with whip cream.  And sit down and watch it.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.  How have you seen or demonstrated love recently?

I LOVED this movie!

If you decide to try some of Adriana Trigiani's books, I would highly recommend starting with the Big Stone Gap series. I did an earlier post on "Home to Big Stone Gap" The 4th book in the series. I can't say enough good things about these books!

Please "edit" my comment to remove the spoiler so it doesn't ruin it for others who might not have seen the movie

I've never seen this movie, but I've always wanted to see it. I might have to rent it.

I may have to rent it this weekend. As far as seen love recently, the husband actually posted on my blog last night and said really sweet things. For the techno-lacking husband, that was love.
