Thankful

Many of you don't know this, but music is a huge part of my life. I've been a musician longer than I've been anything else. So when I'm down, or having trouble feeling positive and hopeful, I listen to music (Spotify is my friend).

Today, being in a somewhat premature Christmas mood, I pulled up my Christmas playlist and started listening. Low and behold the following song played, and I found myself in tears (good tears). So I thought I'd share a little bit of hope and love:

"Thankful"

Somedays we forget
To look around us
Somedays we can't see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give.

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves
There's so much sorrow
It's way too late to say
I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It's so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences
There is a place we're all connected
Each of us can find each other's light

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more

There's so much to be thankful for

Oh yes.
Thanks, Tmbrwolf!
