Musings & Greetings for 2013
January 3, 2013

Dear Readers;

I’ve been feeling a tad guilty about not writing my New Year’s post…other projects have taken my attention elsewhere, and then, Presto, my husband shared this poem which he received from a client. We don’t know who the author is but appreciate the smart words…

Here you go…

A New Year’s wish for you and yours,

 May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your

 ophthalmologist, your psychiatrist, your cardiologist, your urologist,

 your proctologist, your gynecologist, your podiatrist, your plumber,

 and the Income Tax Department .

 May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your love handles, and your

 stocks never fall, and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides,

 your cholesterol, your white blood count, your weight, and your

 property assessments never increase.

 May you be sensitive to the needs of others and may you create within

 yourself integration of your own needs.

 May you laugh at yourself and realize if you were supposed to touch

 your toes while exercising, the Lord would have placed them further

 up, and may you realize the reason so many people take up jogging is

 to hear heavy breathing again.

 May what you see in the mirror delight you and what others see in you

 delight them.

 May someone love you enough to accept and forgive your faults and be

 blind to your blemishes, and tell the whole world about your virtues.

 May you live in a world at peace, with an awareness of the beauty of

 every sunset, every flower, every child’s smile, and every wonderful

 astonishing beat of your own heart.

 If by laughter I can cause you to wipe one tear from your cheek, that

 is my only reward – the government takes everything else!

 Above all, may you continue to smile, may your life be filled with

 laughter, and may you never forget the words found in the Book of

 Proverbs, “A gloomy spirit rots the bones; but a merry heart is like

 good medicine.”

 Be happy & grateful to be alive and having loving family and friends !

Hope you have a healthy, happy, prosperous, sweet New Year!
