No more lives torn apart, Then wars would never start, And time would heal all hearts. And every one would have a friend, And right would always win, And love would never end This is my grown-up Christmas list.
I can still recall the dark Christmas Eves driving home from seeing family and oh-so excited for the pending Christmas morning. It never failed that on Christmas Eve we would hear “Grown-Up Christmas List” by Amy Grant. Although back in those giddy-for-Santa-days that song didn’t really hit the way it does now. Then enter 2020 -- the year of crazy, the year of twists and turns and the year that literally came and affected the entire world, the song resonates deeper still.
