My Favorite Christmas Carol & My Wish For 2012

Would that we all take these lyrics to heart ~ as individuals, as a community, as a country, and as a world.  Wishing all of you a very merry and joy filled Christmas and hoping that we all remember to share our bounty with those less fortunate.  Happy Holidays!






Grown Up Christmas List
Do you remember me?  I sat upon your knee;
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies.
Well, I'm all grown-up now, And still need help somehow,
I'm not a child, But my heart still can dream.
So here's my lifelong wish, My grown-up Christmas list.
Not for myself, But for a world in need.
No more lives torn apart, That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend, And right would always win,
And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.


As children we believed, The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely, Wrapped beneath the tree
Well heaven surely knows, That packages and bows
Can never heal a hurting human soul.
No more lives torn apart, That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend, And right would always win,
And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.


What is this illusion called the innocence of youth?
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth.
And then there would be
No more lives torn apart, That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend, And right would always win,
And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.
This is my only wish
This is my grown-up Christmas list.
