“Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zip-A-Dee-Day”

It was for “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” that the film “Song of the South” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. James Baskett/Uncle Remus sang the lyrics with a smile on his face and a lightness to his step as he walked down a morning path.


Just watching this video makes me remember how contagious this song is. Guess I will admit to singing along.

Shall we accept this challenge from a simple song to look at each day in a positive way?Why not?

Our son Scott and I used to sing “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah” at the top of our lungs, as I drove him to school. We always had smiles on our faces!

As Alfred Lord Tennyson said, “Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

One day at a time, we can choose to help make 2017 a Happy New Year! Will you join me?
