Somehow I lost a day and thought we still had one more day of 2008 until my son told me this morning that today is New Year's Eve. ;-) I love this time of year - time to reflect on the year past, time to dream and plan for the next year. As always I have lots of dreams and plans on the go and look forward to more living, loving and learning in 2009. Last week I came across a story in the little local newsletter from where my folks live. I loved this part of it and think it a very fitting wish at the beginning of a new year. I'd like to share it here.
I wish you enough sun
to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain
to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness
to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain
so that the even the smallest joys in life may appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain
to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss
to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos
to get you through the final goodbye.
