Anyone who knows me knows that I love Christmas and one of the things that I particularly love is Christmas music. I’m one of those people who gets super excited after Thanksgiving because then the radio stations start playing Christmas music non-stop. I know, it’s a little ridiculous, but it makes me so happy.
One song that always seems to hit home for me is “My Grown Up Christmas List”. It’s not the most cheery song, but it’s real. I see what is going on in the world – disease, war, terrorism, injustice and just plain mistreatment of other humans. It’s painful in all honesty. And while there are so many things to love about the world, there are so many things that are mean, hurtful and sad. Presents are great, but my Christmas wish is for there to be a little less hate and a little more love in the world.
