Oh-Nine Is Here

As I cuddle up in my bed at 2:47 AM on January 1, 2009…There’s only one thing on my mind because see…I spent the first two hours of this year doing one thing. Watching Love Actually. It makes me laugh. It makes me bawl my eyes out crying but I watch it every year…without fail…Always alone. It has the best lessons about temptations…impossible love…young love…unexpected love and life in general.

This movie gives me hope…

So I leave you with this thought for 2009…

“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.”

Stay positive in 09 and don’t forget to think about the things you deserve once in a while.

And smile.

    Happy New Year girlie! I looooove that movie so much and I agree, it is best watched alone so you can laugh and cry through the whole thing.

    Oh. My. God! I love that movie!!!! And that quote…. I am so stealing it! LOL

    It’s so true! That’s something I’ve realized recently… love IS actually all around! It’s up to us to see it or turn a blind eye to it!

    Love you, babygirl! 2009 is going to ROCK with LOVE!!!

    Cheers to ’09!

    Are you sitting down? No really sit down. Ok. I have never seen that movie. There I said it. I really have to go rent it because I have seen so many of my friends talk about it and how great it is. That quote says it all perfectly.

    I’m sorry I didn’t see this before we did…

    But, I love Love Actually… ;o)

    Aww… I wanna watch the moobie now… I think I’ve seen the whole thing… in parts though.. busy mom doing dishes and such and sneaking in a few minutes in front of the tv when I’m waiting for the dishes to dry, and to flip the food in the pan…
