My Personal ABC’s of Thankfulness

Annie Lennox-No More I Love You’s (after the music starts, hit the back button and you can continue reading this blog while the music plays.)
(affectionately known to us as the ‘Dib a Dip Song’)
This song was very special to my kids when they were growing up…we used to play it really loud and dance all over the living room to it. My three oldest have fond memories of doing this together.

Kissing-any chance I get
