Thankfulness ... All Year Round

As promised to my little girl at the beginning of "The Muppets Christmas Carol", Ebenezer Scrooge does indeed change his heart.  When finally faced with his own stinginess ... and the disdain of his fellow Londoners ... he vows to be different.  As he paces back and forth in his dressing room following his night visitors, he promises, "I will honor Christmas, and try to keep it all the year!"

He heads out into the street that Christmas morning, and he sees those around him in a new beautiful light.  His fellow man (and muppets) are special and wonderful creations!  And so is Ebenezer!

A Thankful Heart

With a thankful heart, with an endless joy
With a growing family, every girl and boy
Will be nephew and niece to me
Will bring 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 doors
I will bid you welcome, what is mine is yours
With a glass raised to toast your health
And a 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
And to 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 


I absolutely love the final lines from the first verse,  
"Yes, and every night will end, and every day will start, 
With a grateful prayer and a thankful heart." 

A great model for my everyday ... all year round!
