Has anyone listened to John Lennon lately?

When I need a lift or a word of encouragement, he never lets me down. John had such faith in the goodness of humanity and such hope for the future. Very inspiring when you consider the times he lived in. I love his song "Hold On."

With the holidays and a new baby Irick quickly nearing arrival time, I have had a hard time not feeling overwhelmed constantly with health and family issues crowding out the love and hope in my life. This song just encouraged me to hold on a little longer. Hopefully, you'll be able to hear the song by using the YouTube link below. If not, check it out soon. If you think about it as you listen, this song has everything, even a holiday cookie right in the middle!

Joy to the World and Happy Holidays! Much love and hope and faith from the heart of our family to yours.

Hold on, John. John, hold on.
It’s gonna be alright.
You’re gonna win the fight.

Hold on, Yoko. Yoko, hold on.
It’s gonna be alright.
You’re gonna make the flight.

When you’re by yourself, and there’s no one else.
You just have yourself,
And you tell yourself just to hold on.


Hold on, World. World, hold on.
It’s gonna be alright.
You’re gonna see the light.
Oh, when you’re one,
When you’re really one,
You can get things done
Like they’ve never been done
So hold on.
