My 3rd favorite song by George Michael,

I feel so unsure
As I take your hand
And lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies
Something in your eyes
Calls to mind a silver screen
And all its sad goodbyes

I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
I should've known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I've been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Time can never mend
The careless whispers of a good friend
To the heart and mind
Ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find


Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Maybe it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say
We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now who's gonna dance with me
Please stay


Now that you've gone
Now that you've gone
Now that you've gone
Was what I did so wrong
So wrong that you had to leave me alone?

My second favorite song by George Michael,

I'd say love was a magical thing
I'd say love would keep us from pain
Had I been there, had I been there

I would promise you all of my life
But to lose you would cut like a knife
So I don't dare, no I don't dare

'Cause I've never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
And I'm so scared, I'm so scared

Take me back in time maybe I can forget
Turn a different corner and we never would have met
Would you care

I don't understand it, for you it's a breeze
Little by little you've brought me to my knees
Don't you care

No I've never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
I'm so scared of this love

And if all that there is is this fear of being used
I should go back to being lonely and confused
If I could, I would, I swear

George Michael, Rest In Peace

Yesterday on Christmas day, December 25th., we lost another one of our singing stars, George Michael...

"George Michael, the creamy-voiced English songwriter who sold tens of millions of albums 
as a member of the duo Wham! and on his own, died at his home in Goring in Oxfordshire, England. 
He was 53."

This week to honor his memory, I'll be sharing with you his beautiful songs in my blog posts.
I am starting the week with my favorite song from him, "One More Try" 
(This song is a million-selling, Gold-certified hit single written and performed by George Michael
It was released by Columbia Records in 1988 as the fourth single from George's 12x Platinum album, Faith
The song hit #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Soul charts. -source)

~ George Michael ~

I've had enough of danger
And people on the streets
I'm looking out for angels
Just trying to find some peace
Now I think it's time
That you let me know
So if you love me
Say you love me
But if you don't
Just let me go...

'Cause teacher
There are things that I don't want to learn
And the last one I had
Made me cry
So I don't want to learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye...

Merry Christmas!

My Christmas wishes for you are...

COMPASSION to give to those that you feel are alone and are in need of a friend. 
UNDERSTANDING with those that are different from you.  
FORGIVENESS to those that in some way have hurt you.
PEACE, that all hate and wrongdoings come to a stop and only allow the beauty of love to surround you.
PATIENCE when you find yourself in desperate moments. Keep in mind that God never abandons you.
HEALTH for you and all you love ones (including your pets)
HAPPINESS in everything you do and encounter in life.
BEAUTY in everything you see, feel and listen to.
But most of all, I wish for you a heart full of LOVE, 
love to spread abundantly where ever you may go. 
That you may give it to others in handfuls and receive it back it in the same matter.

Have the most wonderful Christmas and may God bless you all and your families and the whole world!!!

With TONS of Love

“Why Not You?

Today, many will awaken with a fresh sense of inspiration. 
Why not you?

Today, many will open their eyes to the beauty that surrounds them. 
Why not you?

Today, many will choose to leave the ghost of yesterday behind and seize the immeasurable power of today. 
Why not you?

Today, many will break through the barriers of the past by looking at the blessings of the present. 
Why not you?

Today, for many the burden of self doubt and insecurity will be lifted by the security and confidence of empowerment. 
Why not you?

Today, many will rise above their believed limitations and make contact with their powerful innate strength. 
Why not you?

Today, many will choose to live in such a manner that they will be a positive role model for their children. 
Why not you?

Today, many will choose to free themselves from the personal imprisonment of their bad habits. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to live free of conditions and rules governing their own happiness.
Why not you?

Today, many will find abundance in simplicity. Why not you?

Today, many will be confronted by difficult moral choices and they will choose to do 
what is right instead of what is beneficial. 
Why not you?

Today, many will decide to no longer sit back with a victim mentality, 
but to take charge of their lives and make positive changes. 
Why not you?

Today, many will take the action necessary to make a difference. 
Why not you?

Today, many will make the commitment to be a better mother, father, son, 
daughter, student, teacher, worker, boss, brother, sister, & so much more. 
Why not you?

Today is a new day!
Many will seize this day.
Many will live it to the fullest.

Why not you?”

The Old Woman and The Post Office... A Christmas Story

Chippenham George worked for the Post Office and his job was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.  
One day just before Christmas, a letter landed on his desk simply addressed in shaky handwriting: 'To God'.  
With no other clue on the envelope, George opened the letter and read:

Dear God,
I am an 93 year old widow living on the State pension.  
Yesterday someone stole my purse.  It had £100 in it, which was all the money 
I had in the world and no pension due until after Christmas.  
Next week is Christmas and I had invited two of my friends over for Christmas lunch.
Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, 
and you are my only hope.  God; can you please help me?

Chippenham George was really touched, and being kind hearted, he put a copy of the letter up on the staff notice board 
at the main Fareham sorting office where he worked.  The letter touched the other postmen and they all dug into their pockets 
and had a whip round.  Between them they raised £95.  [$170 USD] Using an officially franked Post Office envelope, 
they sent the cash on to the old lady, and for the rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of the nice thing they had done.

Christmas came and went.  A few days later, another letter simply addressed to 'God' landed in the Sorting Office.  
Many of the postmen gathered around while George opened the letter.  It read,

Dear God,
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your generosity, 
I was able to provide a lovely luncheon for my friends.  We had a very nice day, 
and I told my friends of your wonderful gift - in fact we haven't gotten over it and even Father John, 
our parish priest, is beside himself with joy.  By the way, there was £5 [$10 USD] missing. 
I think it must have been those thieving fellows at the Post Office.

George could not help musing on Oscar Wilde's quote: 
"A good deed never goes unpunished."

HaHa :P
I read this story a couple of years ago and never forgot it. I am so happy to share it with you now.
Happy Holidays my Beautiful People!
Mucho love,
Lori Novo
