This morning, as I selected my CDs for the day, I included the Tom Paxton album Up and Up. This has one of my favorite songs on it–something I wish for all the readers of this journal:
|May the sound of children be your music.
May your blessings be the ones you earn.
May your days be filled with sun.
May you deeply love someone.
May that someone love you in return.
May your only sorrows be the small ones.
|May your smallest moment be a full one.
May your life be all that it can be.
May you come to love yourself,
And hold that love above yourself,
And hold that love for all the world to see.
Have a great week. Of course, if it isn’t starting so well, perhaps Monday Morning in Paradise is a better song for your week. Alas, the lyrics aren’t online, so I’ll transcribe and type them in when I get home.
