…the dark, sacred night……and I think to myself, “What a wonderful world!”
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky…
…are also on the faces of people passing by…
I see friends shaking hands, saying “How do you do?” They’re really saying, “I love you.”
I hear babies cry; I watch them grow…
They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know. And I think to myself, “What a wonderful world!”
This wonderful song always makes me cry. In my mind, I hear the voices of Louis Armstrong, David Attenborough and the Barrington Childrens Choir expressing these words of appreciation. I feel myself dancing to it with my daughter at her wedding. It is my song of happiness for the best the world has shown me…the Earth and Sky, loving People and my children. It is truly a wonder-filled world, and I am forever happy to be in it.
Thank you, Ann-Christine, for challenging us to articulate all our reasons for happiness.
My mother serendipitously re-sent me a video that I had been searching for amongst my 4,000 saved e-mails. I am in need of this video on a regular basis, and once you see it, you’ll know why. I think I may have posted it before, but like looking up to see the horizon, it must be done often to stay sane. Enjoy, re-blog, share…repeat. (Not like shampoo instructions, which are entirely bogus. Who lathers twice in one shower?)
