My Grown Up Christmas List

With a little help from Amy Grant, I bring you MY GROWN UP CHRISTMAS LIST.

Do you remember me
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies
Well I'm all grown up now
And still need help somehow
I'm not a child but my heart still can dream

So here's my lifelong wish
My grown up Christmas list
Not for myself but for a world in need

As children we believe
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely wrapped beneath the tree
But Heaven only knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal a hurting human soul

What is this illusion called the innocence of youth
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown up Christmas list
This is my only lifelong wish
This is my grown up Christmas list

Actually Santa, there is one more teensy weensy itty bitty thing. Please Santa please, make TOF stop crapping in his diaper!!!

From my humble abode on The Avenue to you and yours

Nice song... although a grown up christmas wish song from Amy WINEHOUSE would've been even funnier. She's such a crack head. ;-)

LOL oh diaper days.... I'm so glad those are over for me (at least until I am ready for baby #3)

How'd you get that picture of the front of my house? I worked hard on making it look so nice for Christmas. Thanks for posting it.
PS...The one that makes me cry is Michael Buble's "Grown up Christmas." There is a video that plays along with pictures of our soldiers (Soxy Deb "Postcards from the Edge" blog posted the video in her Dec 6 blog--sure wish I knew how to link, cuz this would be a great plug for her blog!)
