It gets me every time

I haven't been listening to Christmas music this year. I'm not sure why...maybe it's because things snuck up on me this year, or I've been a little too caught up in politics. I know, I know, it sounds crazy, but I think it might be true! But I found my favorite modern Christmas song on YouTube, and I'll put it up here. I kind of have to laugh at myself when it comes to this song, because I'm like Pavlov's dogs, except I cry instead of drool. As soon as the first strains start, I'm welling up, and by the end of the song, I've got a sodden Kleenex clutched in my hand. I honestly don't know what it is about this song, but it really does get me every time. Take it away, Harry.

When My Heart Finds Christmas

In my eyes are valentines
And Easter eggs and New Year's wine
But when my heart finds Christmas
My eyes will shine like new

All the days are kind to me
But fall too far behind to see
But when my heart finds Christmas
I hope it finds you, too

Let the angels sing around us
Christmas time is here
Let our children's love surround us
Laughing and filled with cheer

My heart told me once before
To find my dream and search no more
And when my heart finds Christmas
I hope it finds you, too

I wish you all a great Christmas, and nothing but good things in the coming year. You all bring a lot of joy into my little corner of the world, and I thank you.
