happyday

It feels like Christmas

It's in the singing of a street corner choir
It's going home and getting warm by the fire
It's true, wherever you find love
It feels like Christmas

A cup of kindness that we share with another
A sweet reunion with a friend or a brother
In all the places you find love it feels like Christmas

It is the season of the heart
A special time of caring
The ways of love made clear
It is the season of the spirit
The message if we hear it
Is make it last all year

It's in the giving of a gift to another
A pair of mittens that were made by your mother
It's all the ways that we show love that feel like Christmas

A part of childhood we'll always remember
It is the summer of the soul in December
Yes, when you do your best for love it feels like Christmas

It is the season of the heart
A special time of caring
The ways of love made clear
It is the season of the spirit
The message if we hear it
Is make it last all year

It's in the singing of a street corner choir
It's going home and getting warm by the fire
It's true, wherever you find love it feels like Christmas
It's true, wherever you find love it feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas

Merry Christmas!!!

So my subject lines haven't been very creative lately.

Anyway, Christmas has been lovely, but we haven't had much time to play with our new toys, so that's what we're going to do, especially because we have to stop early for a VERY IMPORTANT reason.

Sci-Fi's having a Star Trek: The Next Generation marathon tonight, and the episode with our dad in it is going to be on at eleven. If you manage to catch this entry before it comes on in your area, the episode is called "Starship Mine"--see if you can catch it! As I mentioned, it's on at eleven in our area (Pacific time zone, of course). Dad plays the character named Neil who knows all the computery technical stuff.

So that all being the case, I will save the full report until tomorrow, and now we're off to eat Chex Mix and then play with toys.

Today I'm thankful for pleasant surprises, people liking the presents we picked, Martin Short "pretending" to be Canadian (to us, that's one of the funniest things about The Santa Clause 3), finding out about Dad's episode of Star Trek being on in time to tape it, and having a very merry Christmas.
