This morning when I woke up the radio was playing Christmas music. My first thought was “Oh great. I am going to be sick of Christmas before December.” And then I thought “I wonder if they have any new Josh Groban music.” So I called the radio station and asked them and they said they haven’t really sorted through it all but he believed that they did. They have yet to play any Noel music yet. I hope that Thankful and Silent Night are singles. They are my favorite songs on Noel. I really hope Thankful is one. I love that song! It is so beautiful. David really did a great job with it. It is the only song out of all of them that I allow myself to listen to before December. I love the lyrics.

Okay, so I bought Thankful sheet music today. I just wanted to read the lyrics and ended up on musicnotes.com and bought the sheet music. It is digital so I actually printed it off and have it in my possession right now. I was reading through it and I started to cry. The words are so well written and amazing. I think it is so true. Like the song says…

Some days we forget to look around us
Some days we can’t see the joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
To take when we should give
So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for
Look beyond ourselves, there’s so much sorrow
It’s way to vain to say I’ll Cry Tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
So long overdue
So for tonight, we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for
Even with our differences, there is a place we’re all connected
Each of us can find each other’s life
So for tonight we pray for what we know can be
And on this day, we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change and even though
This world needs so much more,
There’s so much to be thankful for
