Love Note:   Keys to Expressing Gratitude, Courage, and Self 

Hello First Unitarian!
Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Alicia Keys has a new song that contains a wonderful message of gratitude to all of the people who are working tirelessly to keep us healthy and moving forward.  She calls it “Good Job,” which aptly applies to her acknowledgment of these generous people.
Alicia Keys performs her new song, “Good Job.”
You’re the engine that makes all things go
And you’re always in disguise, my hero
I see your light in the dark 
Smile in my face when we all know it’s hard.There’s no way to ever pay you back
Bless your heart, know I love you for that
Honest and selfless
I don’t know if this helps it but…

Good job
You’re doing a good job
You’re doing a good job
Don’t get too down
The world needs you now
Know that you matter, matter, matter, yeah.

Six in the morning
And as soon as you walk through the door
Everyone needs you again
The world’s out of order
It’s not as sound
When you’re not around.

All day on your feet
Hard to keep that energy I know
When it feels like the end of the road
You just press forward.

The Mothers, the Fathers
The Teachers that reach us
Strangers to friends
That show up in the end
From the bottom to the top
The listeners that hear us

This is for you
You make me fearless.

Here too is a link to a recent interview with Alicia.
In it, Alicia talks about settling into the things that matter in life.

It’s a great reminder that this period of slow down can be a time of self-reflection, a time of preparation to emerge on the other side more fulfilled than ever.

Sending love,
