happy christmas eve

 

And you asked me what I want this year
and I try to make this kind and clear
just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
'cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
and designer love and empty things
just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words and sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

I need some place simple where we could live
and something only you can give
and that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive
and the one poor child who saved this world
and there's ten million more who probably could
if we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words and sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
and somehow stop this endless fight
just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words and sing out loud
'cause everyone is forgiven now
'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

'cause tonight's the night the world begins again 

Lyrics- Better Days by Goo Goo Dolls 

Enjoy your holiday with your families and friends. Tonight we will be with mmb's family watching movies, having dinner and going to mass-one of my favorite things about this holiday! 
Over the next couple days take time to look around you and take it all in. If you see someone you can help, no matter how big or small, just do it. Smile at someone who looks like they could use some kindness, leave a small gift for someone you know they will find it, feed a stray animal, pray for someone. Remember those not with us and hold your loved ones a little tighter. 
It just might make someone's day.
It is something we should do every day, but seems especially poignant this time of the year. 
Here's to carrying the Christmas spirit into the new year!



Happy Christmas Everyone!
