Happy New Year!
I offer you all this Irish blessing for the New Year. I watch this year leave with a heavy heart. So much has happened, and I don’t think I’ll ever be the same. I can’t quite say I’m glad it’s over, but I also can’t say it was the best year of my life. Full of lots of painful growth, I guess.
Blessing for the New Year
May the new year bring
The warmth of home and hearth to you.
The cheer and goodwill of friends to you,
The hope of a childlike heart to you.
The joy of a thousand angels to you,
The love of the Son and God’s peace to you.
