I just finished watching Scrooged for the billionth time, not that I or Bill Murray are quite that old. But this time as he did his ending spiel, I cried (it’s been that kind of year).
It’s Christmas Eve, we can be kind. It’s the one night of the year where we are the best that we can be. We can love. We can be good to each other. And if we do it enough, it just might stick. We can be greedy for being kind.
It just might stick.
Oh, and isn’t this the year for hoping that kindness and goodness and love just might stick?
When I first watched Scrooged back in a theater (yep, just that old), I remembered thinking, what a weird song to end the movie with. It’s not a Christmas song. But now, very much right now, I can’t think of a better song especially when we are so much in need of opening our hearts.
Think of your fellow manJackie De Shannon, Randy Myers, and Jimmy Holiday
Lend him a helping hand
Put a little love in your heartYou see it’s getting late
Oh, please don’t hesitate
Put a little love in your heartAnd the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place
For you and me
You just wait and see

And let’s give a little love to the writer and original singer, Jackie De Shannon:
May we all put a little love in our hearts!
