Well, it has been a difficult year for many folks. We all hope 2010 will bring a renewed sense of well-being and balance to all people across the Earth. When you are starting your day on January 1st, 2010…or when you arise in the morning….or before you watch the football game, gather your friend and family together and say a blessing over all!!


It sure won’t hurt any of you….and starting the New Year off with a positive thought and Blessing may very well help.


Here are a few New Years Blessings if you are without words:


“May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.”


May what you see in the mirror give you joy, and what others see in you bring them also.


 May the people you love —- love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your warts, and tell others about your virtues.


May you remember to say “I love you” at least once a day to your partner, your child, your parent and to your brothers/sisters.


Ask everyone in your circle– What did you learn this past year? And what do you want to learn this next year? So be it.


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit—

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.


Do not spend all you have,

for he who spends all he has

often spends more than he has.


May we live in a world at peace and the awareness of God’s love in every sunset, every flower’s unfolding petals, every baby’s smile, every lover’s kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.




Dear Lord, please give me


 A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;


A work to do which has real value,

     without which the world would be the poorer;


A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed; 


An understanding heart;


A sense of humor;


Time for quiet, silent meditation;


A feeling of the presence of God;


The patience to wait for the coming of these things,

     with the wisdom to recognize them when they come.




REMEMBER in the New Year …

People will forget what you said.

People will forget what you did,

but people will never forget

how you made them feel.


AN IRISH BLESSING for the New Year

May there always be work for your hands to do.

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine on your window pane.

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near you.

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
