>This morning I was enjoying my family, and preparing lunch for my even bigger family with the Dixie Chicks as my soundtrack.
This is one of my favorite songs, from probably my favorite album ever, and it puts the happy in my melancholy mood. As hard as I find it to live in a world where so many people live with unmet needs and pain and heartache, I have some hope.
‘Cause our children are watching us
They put their trust in us
They’re gonna be like us
So let’s learn from our history
And do it differently
I hope, for more love, more joy and laughter
I hope, we’ll have more than we’ll ever need
I hope, we’ll have more happy ever after
I hope, we can all live more fearlessly
And we can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope
