It's been awhile since I've been in touch! Holidays are always a busy time of year, and with lots of family functions, a great opportunity for "character building growth opportunities!" I wrote a song last year that reminds us of keeping our since of humor at the holidays!:
CUSSIN AND FUSSIN AT THE HOLIDAYS
The family’s cussin, fussin, and discussin’
It’s the Holidays!
I didn’t ask to hear “Blue Christmas”
But on and on it plays.
I look forward to the time
When family fur’s not flyin’,
And the battle of the sexes, and the ex’s
Are together again.
1)My Momma said she’d never d-i-v-o-r-c-e
Though trials and tribulations she’s had many.
A sood Southern Lady wouldn’t divorce, I guess,
“Divorce honey, never; but consider murder yes!”
2)My husband’s ex is charming, and so’s her husband.
My husband gets along with him
Cause they used to be best friends!
Before she ran off with him, to start a brand new life,
and she took the kinds and the dogs and cats
to become his new wife!
Now a day’s a family is unique, varied.
Hardly “Norman Rockwell,” man and woman married:
Daughter’s who are lesbian, and father’s who are gay;
I’ve come to learn that Tiny Tim, is now named Norma Rae!
3)My Mother-in-law was reluctant to give the “ex” a hug
But by the end of the holiday
They were sharing the egg nog!
The kids and grandkids runnin’ round, they seem to get along,
And it doesn’t matter any more, who was right or wrong!
