Happy December!

I wanted to post this song on Thanksgiving, but decided to take a computer fast. :) I absolutely love these lyrics from the song "Thankful" by Josh Groban. And as we just passed a wonderful holiday and move to the next wonderful holiday, there really is SO much to be thankful for.


Somedays we forget to look around us.
Somedays we can't see the joy that surrounds us.
So caught up inside ourselves, we take when we should give.
So for tonight we pray for what we know can be.
And on this day we hope for what we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change.
And even though we all can still do more, there's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves, there's so much sorrow.
It's way too late to say I'll cry tomorrow.
Each of us must find our truth--it's so long overdue.
So for tonight we pray for what we know can be.
And every day we hope for what we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change and even though we all can still do more, there's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences, there is a place we're all connected.
Each of us can find each other's light.

So for tonight we pray for what we know can be.
And on this day we hope for what we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change and even though this world needs so much more, there's so much to be thankful for.


I truly do have so much to be thankful for this year. The best family in the world, the most memorable wedding, a wonderful husband, a warm apartment to live in, a good job in the midst of a scary economy, friends that rock my socks, and the joy that comes with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is such a fabulous time of year. Happy December to you!

Just coming from Chanelle's site. I love that song too. I have it on my site (except now I'm playing Christmas music) but I left both boxes of songs to play if I get tired of the other. I barely found it when I started blogging & loved it too. You sound so happy! First Christmas will be great I'm sure! Happiness!

@ Becky--

Thanks; I do enjoy making cute backgrounds. And I can't wait to see what Christmas morning brings to me either....;)

Isn't that song the greatest? Gotta love Joshy. And YOU! Thanks for the reminder to be thankful for even the seemingly little things.

Fun! So, if you're serious about one day wanting to have a baby and do it naturally... my recommendation is to educate yourself! A lot of women think it'll just happen that way... and I don't know too many that end up successful without foresight.
