New Year, No Fear

As I was preparing for work tonight it occurred to me I hadn’t posted in a while. I wrote a post about Lana’s health issues, but didn’t want to upload it until the drama was done. (It is now, I just forgot to do it.) Anyway, so as I was considering this, Pandora sent me a message in the form of a song. “Better Days” by The Goo Goo Dolls popped up. It’s a beautiful song, especially around this time of year. And you know what? It kind of fits the theme of Dream Big.

Go ahead, give it a listen. And while you do that, think about the message very seriously. I think it is important for all people, and all creatures, to feel loved. Especially shelter dogs. Couldn’t you just imagine a newly adopted dog making this plea in his head, hoping the others who were in the shelter with him could also find homes?

And you asked me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

‘Cause I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
And designer love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

So take these words and sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again

I need someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And that’s faith and trust and peace while we’re alive

And the one poor child who saved this world
And there’s 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

So take these words and sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
