Thought  For This Week.

Every day should be Christmas when you have the kind of mind,
That stores up all the goodness and the sweetness it can find.
When you don't need an occasion, to spread a bit of cheer,
You keep on giving to everyone,
daily throughout the year.

Every day should be Christmas, with a gaily wrapped surprise,
You'll learn to see the friendship, in someone else's eyes.
When you try a little harder, and complain a little less,
You'll be holding fast to the fervour of the faith that you possess.

Every day should be Christmas, when you've found that you can be,
More concerned with words like "you" and less with "I" and "me."
It's fun to do a favour, and to lend a helping hand,
Keeping Christmas going is what we should understand.

Every day should be Christmas, with a beauty deeply cast,
When you find it doesn't matter, if you're first or if you're last.
When you can face your conscience, and be glad of what you are,
Then every day is Christmas, with the beauty of it's star.
