Ain't Love Grand?

Sitting in Starbucks, preoccupied with the economy, the election and a world consumed with war and rumors of war, I was feeling pretty grim.

And then I got to watch a couple having their engagement pictures taken. They looked at each other with such devotion, love and happiness...and I remembered the last time someone looked at me like that. It was this morning as Sainted Wife was leaving for work. It's the same look I get every morning, no matter what kind of mood we'd been in the night before. The look that says, "When the day's over, no matter what happens, I want you to come home to me.". I always have and I always will.

In this land of confusion, if you're as lucky as I am to have someone who wants you around when you can't even stand yourself then you're very, very blessed.

Faith, hope and love...and the greatest of these is love.

... and nothing's better than true love, except maybe an MLT -- that's mutton, lettuce and tomatoe -- where the tomatoes are ripe, and the mutton is nice and lean...

I know this is not word for word, but it begged to be loosely quoted in this context.
