Better Days

This song has been rolling around my head today...

It's the first snowfall of the year - the absolute BEST part of living in Winnipeg. It's too beautiful for words.

It's today's news that my grandma is officially cancer-free. (I TOLD you to stop messing with the women in my life, Cancer. They're too strong for you. They will crush you like the snivelling little bitch you are.)

It's Katie being 'home' in Winnipeg again, and listening to Briony giggling her with upstairs. It feels like having part of our family back.

It's spending the week working on a client project that I am completely passionate about - a rare opportunity to actually do something good for the world through advertising.

It's FINALLY feeling like I just might beat this cold that's been hanging on so tightly.

The world just feels so fresh and new... I love it. I can't stop smiling today. I've missed this feeling of HOPE. It feels like the beginning of Christmas :)



And you ask 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 thats 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

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

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

It was great to be 'home' with the wonderful Wright's.

The snow is beautiful.

The video reminded me of how much I like guitar playing boys with longish blond hair.
I'm so excited that your grandma is cancer free! That is great news, thank you for sharing!

Cheers!
