I think we’re all familiar with the song “My Grownup Christmas List.” I don’t know about you, but I can barely get through that song without tearing up. It paints such a beautiful picture:
“No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal our hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end”
It seems the older I get, the more precious this song is. Perhaps it’s because time seems to move so much faster and you realize that childhood fantasies fall short of the real world. Maybe I’m just being naive but I wonder what the world would be like if everyone had this mindset not just at Christmas time but everyday of the year. Could it be that the world would be just a little bit brighter? Just something to think about.
