On this last day of 2017, I leave you with words not my own.  To me, this is the ultimate New Year’s song, because it reminds me that I can start fresh if I want to.  Anything and everything is possible again.  I like the idea of forgiving everyone tonight, and maybe the thought that everyone will forgive me.

May 2018 bring you all what you need!  Much love to you all!!

Better Days- The Goo Goo Dolls

And you asked me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
‘Cause I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
And designer love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
So take these words and sing out loud
‘Cause everyone is forgiven now
‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
I need some place simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And that’s faith and trust and peace while we’re alive
And the one poor child who saved this world
And there’s ten million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them
So take these words and sing out loud
‘Cause everyone is forgiven now
‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
So take these words and sing out loud
‘Cause everyone is forgiven now
‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again

  1. Its funny, I had a different song in my head this morning and had Alexa(present from my daughter and son in law) play it for me first thing. I am afraid yours is a bit more upbeat. The Sound of Silence by Disturbed joined me in reflection this morning.
