We all know someone who brings us joy when we need it most
Through smiles, laughter
At Lays we call them joygivers
What they do may seem small
But it can make a world of difference
Without a second thought
They can change our perspective
They’re everywhere
They’re everything we need right now

Some ideas of how to bring joy to others :

Spend time with them
Bake them something
Send a nice message
Give them a small gift
Do a good deed
Tell a joke
Run an errand or do a chore
Give them flowers

Stand by me

Lyrics

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me
Stand by me

Stand by me, oh, stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me
Stand by me

 

How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

 [John  Lewis]

This year’s story is about the power of a gift. And how that gift inspired, changed and influenced the course of a little boy’s life. That little boy just happens to be Elton John. The film begins in present day and works backwards chronologically through Elton’s life right until the moment on Christmas morning when he received the special gift that changed his life.

Your Song Lyrics

It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money but boy if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
