With a Thankful Heart

Have you ever seen the Muppet Christmas Carol? If not, you should. It's my favorite version of the Christmas Carol EVER, and my family watches it on Thanksgiving Day every year, and then a couple of more times during the season. At the end of the movie, Scrooge and company sing a song about having a thankful heart, and I love it, and it's perfect for this week. I've had a lovely week off, visited with my bff-cousin, enjoyed two Thanksgiving dinners with my two families (mine and Husbands), sewed a quilt (pictures to follow soon), and more.

Sisters. Gotta love it!

So, it's with a thankful heart I get ready for another week!

With a thankful heart, with an endless joy
With a growing family, every girl and boy
Will be nephew and niece to me (Nephew and niece to me)
Will bring love, hope and peace to me (Love, hope and peace to me)

Yes and every night will end, and every day will start
With a greatful prayer and a thankful heart
With an open smile and with open doorsI will bid you welcome, what is mine is yours
With a glass raised to toast your health (With a glass raised to toast your health)
And a promise to share the wealth (Promise to share the wealth)
I will sail a friendly course, file a friendly chart
On A sea of love and a thankful heart
Life is like a jouney, who knows when it ends?
Yes and if you need to know the measure of a man
You simply count his friends
Stop and look around you, the glory that you see
Is born again each day, don't let is slip away
How precious life can be
With a thankful heart that is wide awake
I do make this promise, every breath I take
Will be used now to sing your praise (Used now to sing your praise)
And to beg you to share my days (Beg you to share my days)
With a loving guarantee that even if we part
I will hold you close in a thankful heart

I will hold you close in a thankful heart
