Thankful November Things - 1

I feel so lucky to have been a little kid during the 60s. We were kids, but exposed to much. Vietnam and the antiwar movement, hippies, awesome music that addressed the times, the Civil Rights movement, our parents worked and I personally felt safe knowing I had a home to live in that was filled with food, dogs, cats and family and friends. I may not have understood everything going on then, but I do now. We were also exposed to good cartoons and fun TV shows. I also think that the teens and those in their 20s back then, may have a different take on that decade.

Having shared all that, I was feeling a little bit of a flashback and want to share a song that I loved as a little kid. I never really knew what the heck they were talking about, just knew I loved the song and would dance around the house playing it over and over and over on the old console stereo. It reminds me of my big sis, as she had the album and would bring it when she'd come to visit. Times have changed and I could not even imagine being a little kid in any other decade.

I've seen many people taking the opportunity to share daily thing they are thankful for during this month. If I can even attempt to keep up, this post would reflect item number one. I am thankful for the decade I was a child in, and I'm so thankful that I was exposed to this song.

  1. Funny, I heard a song yesterday that reminded me of childhood. Can you name that tune?

    "Hate your next-door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace."

    Prophetic lyrics, huh?
