Happy New Year

Hello Friends,

Wishing each and every one of you a Very Happy, Healthy New Year. Of course, I am late with my post; my maiden name should be "LATE".'

Here is a poem that I would like to share with you that my niece wrote a few days ago. Very meaningful, don't you think?

A New Year’s Toast

A New Year’s Toast

A New Year’s Toast

….and so the year has resigned
and we accept the cleanness of a new one…

May the regrets we have had in the year that passed,
teach us lessons we never had the chance to learn.

May the disappointments we have endured,
be a discovery into strength we never knew we had.

May the failed attempts that left us frustrated,
give us focus and conviction to try again.

Because this year we will be wiser
and will learn more lessons.

Because this year we will know we have the strength
to deal with any disappointment.

Because this year we have another opportunity
to succeed in our attempts.

…and so I raise my glass to the year before us,
That we will learn more lessons,
Have confidence in our strength,
And acknowledge all our successes.

Happy New Year!
