This song has been with me since I was very young. It is a Christmas song but the ideals and integrity that are in these words are very much what I grew up with.

I didn’t have the best childhood and I certainly didn’t have any support or care at home, but I had Kenny …. and in this case Dolly too! 😀

I have always found comfort and solace in my music and this song might be one of the reasons why, I really have tried to live my life just like this since I was very young and still do:

“I Believe In Santa Claus”
(with Dolly Parton)

I believe in Santa Claus
I believe in Santa Claus
I believe there’s always hope when all seems lost
And I believe in Santa Claus
I believe in Santa Claus, I’ll tell you why I do
‘Cause I believe that dreams and plans and wishes can come true
I believe in miracles, I believe in magic too
Oh I believe in Santa Claus and I believe in youI believe in family, in country and in smiles
I believe in turnin’ negatives to positives in life
I believe in lookin’ farther up the farther down we get
I believe when someone hurts us we should forgive and forget

And I believe in Santa Claus
I believe in Santa Claus
I believe love should prevail at any cost
And I believe in Santa Claus

I believe in saying what you mean and meaning what you say
I believe a better attitude can make a better way
And I believe in viewing life as a journey that we’re on
And lookin’ at our troubles as another stepping stone

And I believe that everything in life is what it’s meant to be
I believe there is a God somewhere although he’s hard to see
I believe I am so therefore I should do all that I can
To be a better piece in the puzzle of God’s plan

And I believe in Santa Claus
I believe in Santa Claus
I believe there’s always hope when all seems lost
And I believe in Santa Claus

Let the little children sing it

I believe in Santa Claus, I believe in Santa Claus
I believe in Santa Claus, I believe in Santa Claus

Let the whole world sing it with us

I believe in Santa Claus, I believe in Santa Claus
I believe in Santa Claus, I believe in Santa Claus

Let the whole world sing it with us

I believe in Santa Claus
I believe in Santa Claus
I believe there’s always hope when all seems lost
I believe in Santa Claus

Obviously it’s not the Santa part I believe in – but the rest of the words I strive to live by!
Sir came home and put my favourite Christmas CD on … ❤ I can’t help help but smile, laugh, sing and dance along! LOL
Even my teen boys will tell you that Kenny is a great artist with lots of good things to say and that you can learn from his words! 😉
‘Tis the season …. 😀
