Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep

As Christmas draws near I've had a few different thoughts on my mind. I've been remembering holiday traditions, basking in the snow, and sitting by myself in my apartment getting ready to fly home. At this time tomorrow, I'll be sitting in San Francisco, hopefully, if it doesn't snow. While I sit here I can't help but remember a song from my NSYNC days. I know, cheesy, lame, whatev, it expresses my sentiments well.

Crossing the ocean
with my window view
Thinking of the time I spent with you
And I close my eyes
and I see the family
Making out their wish list
All dressed up for Christmas
On my own for too many years
I miss the happiness
I miss the tears

I see the children
playing in the snow
Precious memories that I used to know
When I see the love in
the mother's eyes
Always there to teach us
The real meaning of Christmas
On my own for too many years
I miss the happiness
I miss the tears

It doesn't matter how grown
you think you are
Something happens to you
When you see that shining star

When I close my eyes
And I'm all alone
I think of all the love we shared
When I need a friend
Or a helping hand
I know that you will all be there
I've been gone for so many holidays
But you can light the fire
Cause this year (this year)
I'll be home for Christmas

When I close my eyes
And I'm all alone
I think of all the love we shared
When I need a friend
Or a helping hand
I know that you will all be there
I've been gone for so many holidays
But you can light the fire,
I'm sending a wire
That this year
I'll be home for Christmas Day
