Tune Tuesday #21 – Give a Little Bit

This week is Thanksgiving! In my early adulthood my focus shifted from counting my blessings during this season, to thanking the people who are blessings. Almost 10 years ago, I started the tradition of sending personal, hand written, thank you notes to people that have the biggest impact on my year. These notes outline specific actions, words of wisdom, support, guidance etc. that helped me in ways that would not have been possible if that person wasn’t in my life. It has been eye opening to see how people respond to these notes; they are either pleasantly surprised or don’t know how to receive honest, direct appreciation. I feel both reactions speak volumes to the love and appreciation that is not expressed enough to people within our daily lives. These notes have shifted and deepened my relationships in ways I never could have anticipated. We often assume people know what they mean to us, but many times they don’t know, are unsure or need to hear it. This Thanksgiving don’t assume, tell a loved one what they mean, it can make all the difference.

Today’s song addresses the love that we need to share on a daily basis. Lead with love and you will soon be a light of love and healing. :)

Give A Little Bit – Goo Goo Dolls

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
Give a little bit
Give a little bit of my love to you
See the man with the lonely eyes
Take his hand, you’ll be surprised

So I’ll give a little bit
I’ll give a lttle bit of my life for you
So give a little bit
Give a little bit of your time to me
Now’s the time that we need to share
So send a smile, we’re on our way back home
ooh yea yea
We gotta feel it
Yea yea yea yea…
Ooo
Don’t you need to feel at home
Ooo you gotta feel it

Ooo you gotta sing, we’ve come along way tonight

So give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
I’ll give a little bit
I’ll give a little bit of my life for you

So send a smile, we’re on our way back home
