Only can the spirit turn the world around.

Last night I watched the Great Pumpkin with CJ and I was reminded how great television when I was growing up. From School House Rock to The Electric Company, Sesame Street to the Muppets we learned new things every time we watched TV. I can still sing every word to conjunction junction. Imagine the glee when I saw there was a new Muppet movie coming out!!! YES another opportunity to bridge my past and CJ's present. *does happy dance* It's one of my favorite things share with him and I think he gets a kick out of knowing him mom and dad watched some of the same shows.  

After the Great pumpkin went off I asked CJ did he want to watch my favorite Muppets episode and he did. As we watched it I realized not only did we learn and grow intellectually we grew as people. There were some really awesome lessons on the Muppet show (Thank You Jim Henson). I got a little teary eyed watching CJ try to pick up every word but after the third time he had it. Let's hope the message sticks. 


We come from the fire, living in the fire
Go back to the fire, turn the world around
We come from the fire, living in the fire
   We come from the fire
Go back to the fire, turn the world around
   Go back to the fire, turn the world around

We come from the water, living in the water...
We come from the mountain, living on the mountain...
Oh, oh so is life
Ah, ha so is life
Oh, oh so is life
Ah, ha so is life

{Refrain}
Do you know who I am
Do I know who you are
See we one another clearly
Do we know who we are
Oh, oh so is life
Abatiwaha, so is life
Oh, oh so is life
Abatiwaha, so is life

Water make the river, river wash the mountain
Fire make the sunlight, turn the world around

Heart is of the river, body is the mountain
Spirit is the sunlight, turn the world around

We are of the spirit, truly of the spirit
Only can the spirit turn the world around
******************************************************************
Some  grown folks need a reminder of this especially in this day and age. Longing for 
the days when life was this simple, AH HA so is life.
