Thursday, December 12: If you ain't drunk off Holiday music then there must be somethin' wrong. What's your favorite holiday song. You must have a go to tune. Hey that rhymes.I hope y'all have been safe and warm so far this holiday season. It's still dreary here in North Texas. Last night driving from work, I was praying cause there was still ice on the roads in some parts. I was on the toll road for a bit and I couldn't figure out why I was the only one in my lane until I came upon all the ice. I don't know how all y'all Yankees do it but my hats off to you. I'm trying to get this post up real quick like. I'm babysitting for a family friend. I do it from time to time. I spend the night and then take the kids to school. This morning two of the kids woke up before me. I was promptly greeted with Sponge Bob playin from the living room tv.
But, back to staying warm. The pic above features some of the things that have helped me get through this dreary weather and being trapped in the house so many of the days. I'm surprised family members or the neighbors haven't gotten annoyed with all my holiday music. I have always loved the classic when the holiday's come around. 'Mary did you Know', always brings a tear to my eye. And Pentatonix does a version of, "Little Drummer Boy", that brings a whole new meaning to spiritual and talent. But the past year or so I have really gotten into Country Christmas music. Who doesn't want to bop their head to, "I sure do like this Christmas cookies... baby."
Last year Scotty McCreery put out a Christmas album and I've been playin' the heck out of it. It has all my favorite classics but it also has two songs that are originally his. His song Christmas in Heaven is so beautiful. Last year I bought the cd but had yet to listen to it. I was skypin' with Bestfran Numero Uno when I heard it. Y'all that was a hot mess cause I couldn't stop cryin' on camera. Y'all know I'm always wonderin' about Heaven and what it's like. I wrote a few weeks ago about the family friend who died and his glimpse at Heaven. There's a line in the song where Scotty says,
Is the snow falling down on the streets of gold Are the mansions all covered in white Are you singing with angels "Silent Night" I wonder what Christmas in heaven is likeWhen I start to feel sad I try and think of this song and it makes me feel better. This holiday season the song makes me smile a tad more cause I know now my dad has a friend and heaven and he's probably havin' fun showin' him What Christmas in Heaven is like.
