Little Slice of Heaven

I first started writing this song in Austin, Texas while attending a friend’s wedding. It was an incredible wedding complete with a dance off during the reception (I think I came in second).

This song pulls in a lot of pieces from all over my life. And while American🇺🇸 Thanksgiving and Canadian🇨🇦 (real) Thanksgiving happen in different months, they are both wonderful celebrations of all that we share. I hope you enjoy this, and if you do, please feel free to share. After all, today is a day for sharing.

Happy Thanksgiving

I can still remember grandma’s house at thanksgiving
With all the folks who made our lives worth living
We had Turkey, potatoes, gravy, and dressing
And all dug in soon as grandpa gave the blessing

With our plates piled high and our friends held tight
Our family knew how to do the holidays right
It felt even better as every single second went by
It’s almost like a little slice of heaven snuck away from the sky

And when I met my girl my life got even better
And I thank The Good Lord for the moment that I met her
And when she took me home on that night in November
I knew that it would be a thanksgiving to remember

We arrived to the scene of a new mother and a child
We both looked at them and simultaneously smiled
And I knew that I was blind to a blessing if I
Couldn’t see that
It’s almost like a little slice of heaven snuck away from the sky

It’s almost like a little slice of heaven snuck away
Showing us what life is gonna be like on the day
When we finally see that place where the angels fly
It’s almost like a little slice of heaven snuck away from the sky

And that got me thinking of that thanksgiving day
When we couldn’t go home so we decided to stay
And celebrate the life that we were making together
And went for a walk in the warm fall weather

We could still hear the birds as they sang in the trees
And river laughed with us as it waited for the freeze
And the two of us strolled along and let out a sigh
Thinkin’
It’s almost like a little slice of heaven snuck away from the sky

I can almost imagine God looking around
And wondering what his kingdom is doing on the ground
With the grateful sinners and and the people they love
Who decide to take a moment to thank The Lord above

For the food on the table and the clothes on their back
And the people who always keep them on the right track
Even when grace and patience is in short supply
It’s almost like a little slice of heaven snuck away from the sky

It’s been a hard year with a lot of close calls
But a daddy picks his boy up whenever he falls
And I’ve ten tears of joy for every one of sadness I cry
Because
It’s almost like a little slice of heaven snuck away from the sky
