Once, while attending a wedding reception, I overheard a woman chatting with her friend about the groom. With a slightly snippy but deliberate tone, she said: “I don’t know what he (the groom) sees in her. It really must be true that love is blind.”

At the time, I recall thinking I should confront the woman by telling her, “You’re absolutely WRONG!” Although I managed to keep my thoughts to myself, my feelings about love haven’t changed. True love is never really blind. It actually sees more, not less. And as someone once said, “because it sees more, it is then willing to see less.”
