Taking a cue from the Muppets

The Muppet Christmas Carol is probably my all-time favorite Christmas movie. My brother and I watched it countless times when we were growing up, and now I am thrilled that my Bees love it as much as we did.

I'm not gonna pretend. The Muppets make me cry. Every time. Little froggy Tiny Tim sings a song that has turned into a prayer from my heart. The lyrics are simple, yet so full of hope and love and Meaning. Its words are such that, had I planned it a little better, I would have read to Jeremy at our wedding.

Life is full of sweet surprises
Every day's a gift
The sun comes up and I can feel it lift my spirit
Fills me up with laughter, fills me up with song
I look into the eyes of Love and know that I belong

Bless us all, who gather here
The loving family I hold dear
No place on earth compares with home
And every path will bring me back from where I roam

Bless us all, that as we live
We always comfort and forgive
We have so much, that we can share
With those in need we see around us everywhere

Let us always love each other
Lead us to the Light
Let us hear the voice of Reason, singing in the night
Let us run from anger and catch us when we fall
Teach us in our dreams and please, yes please
Bless us one and all

Bless us all with playful years
With noisy games and joyful tears
We reach for You and we stand tall
And in our prayers and dreams
We ask You bless us all

Bless us all
