Our Wish

As we all prepare to celebrate the magic of Christmas, a song by Rascal Flatts from their album entitled “Me and My Gang” expresses perfectly how Jim and I feel about all of our family and friends.  It’s not really a Christmas song, but it seems to fit today and we wanted to share it with you:

“My Wish” (Steve Robson, Jeffrey Steele)

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,

And each road leads you where you want to go.

And if you’re faced with the choice and you have to choose,

I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.

And if one door opens to another door closed,

I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window.

If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.

But more than anything, more than anything,

My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to.

Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,

You never need to carry more than you can hold.

And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin to,

I hope you know somebody loves you and wants the same things too,

Yeah, this is my wish.

I hope you never look back but you never forget

All the ones who love you and the place you left.

I hope you always forgive and you never regret,

And you help somebody every chance you get.

Oh, you find God’s grace in every mistake,

And always give more than you take.

This is my wish.

I hope you know somebody loves you!

We wish each of you a very Merry Christmas!

We're never alone in this lifestyle, even though we may be physically alone :)
