My Grown-Up Christmas List

Dear blog readers,

Merry Christmas!

I love this time of year as it truly is the most wonderful!

A great writer by the name of Hamilton Wright Mable once penned, "Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."

Right on Mable! :)

This holiday season tends to bring out the best in humanity with classic, heart-stirring movies like It's A Wonderful Life, people being nicer to each other in the stores and on the street, kitchens filled with sweet scents of cooking and baking of holiday dinner favorites, school children happily giving gifts of cards and candy to each other and their favorite teacher, not to mention all the engagements, births and marriages which take place on Christmas Day! :)

Unfortunately, we don't always stay in these good spirits after December 25th. Most of us go back to our old routines and the gift of kindness is forgotten.

Enter, "My Grown-Up Christmas List," a song by a woman whom I believe is a kindred spirit :), Amy Grant! Amy's been making music for decades but this song of hers is by far, one of the very best.

Why? Because it engages the audience in a conspiracy of love. :)

Don't take my word for it, see for yourself:
