No matter how challenging life gets, or no matter what we face in life, we need to continue to give thanks for the blessings we have. We need to continue to spread the love, the joy and happiness, and see Christmas through the eyes of a child…see Christmas everywhere.
I wanted to write a song that was reminiscent of the purity of Christmas, the kind of Christmas that is somewhat preserved through the innocent and grateful eyes of a child. I also wanted to write a song that’s full of hope. A song that is rich with the fund memories and happiness that Christmas represented for us, and for every child around the world.
When I wrote this song, I closed my eyes, and immediately, vivid images of my childhood began to cascade through the corners of my mind. With each memory, the pure sentiments of Christmas came alive to me. I remembered the festivities, the Christmas spirit, the Christmas breeze, the anticipation, the elation, the joy, and the laughter, which was an integral part of the soundtrack of our lives.
We didn’t have much, but we were rich in love! We were also very grateful for the little that we had.
