December 13th – Feliz Navidad 🎶

One of my favourite ways to celebrate the holidays was to enjoy the music of the season – until it was not. For years the thought of Christmas carols and hymns upset me. On December 1st, the radio stations and department stores would start to ring in the season with the likes of ‘Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer’ and ‘Silent Night’ – and I would feel physically ill and emotionally scarred.

This year, I decided that I was going to celebrate this Christmas Season – no holds barred! I have been cleaning and shopping and decorating. I have watched Christmas specials, baked Christmas treats AND I have been playing hours of Christmas music. It was a bit difficult going in, but things have turned around. If I am having a good day, the music makes it better. If I am having a bad day, the music lifts my spirits as it did long ago. It’s a Christmas Miracle. 🌟

Today, I decided to share some favourite Christmas tunes. My apologies to those who cannot access North America You Tube offerings. Hopefully, you will recognize the tunes and share in some pleasant memories.

Feliz Navidad
Little Drummer Boy
The Newborn King – Bonanza Christmas Special
Old Toy Trains
Away In a Manger
Do They Know It’s Christmas

I hope that jogged some memories or at least reminded you of your own favourite Christmas Carols from over the years.

That is it for today, folks. Take care and have a great day. 💞

Day 24 – Musical Interlude

It is Day 24 of my June ‘Accentuate the Positive’ challenge.  I am a bit short of time today so I am going to make this quick by sharing a few of my favourite ‘positive’ tunes.  Hope you find one you enjoy!

The only sports tune I love – The only time I got near a baseball field, I walked into a swinging bat and got all my baby teeth knocked out. No real harm done but the tooth fairy was a little miffed.
Dan & Anne – July 1999 – Our Wedding Song
I just love this tune 💛
Have to include at least one Alan Jackson tune. 🤣
My absolutely favourite hymn – I was devastated when my Dad died but when my cousin sang this song at his funeral, it made all the difference 💖

Hope you found something that helped perk up your day! I have to get Kat ready to go to the groomers so that is it for Day 24. Only six more days to go!

Have a great day and I hope to see you tomorrow!

Lighten Up

Everyone has those times when their light is shining a bit dim. This is one of those weeks for me so I thought it would be a great time to try to share a few of my favourite tunes. I hope they brighten everyone’s day! 🤗

I use this one before ‘meditating to send healing’. Feel the love 💞
How can this not make you happy? A true classic.
Good for a smile or a tear – always brings back memories of my little boys.

Have a great day!
