Warm Words for 2009

This was emailed to me by a dear friend. It has the feeling of an Irish Blessing.


A TOAST TO BRING IN THE NEW YEAR!

May your home never be too small
To hold all of your friends.
May you live as long as you want
And never want as long as you live.
May the good Lord take a liking to you,
But not too soon.
May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.
May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you, and heaven accept you.
Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening
And live every day as if it were your last.

Here's To You, My Friends...... ....All Things Blessed, Joyous and Wonderful in 2009...

I and dear man of mine lived in Tucson for nearly a decade. We liked it...except for the inferno in the summer. LOL

I think you made a good choice with you transplanting to Mississippi tho. I bet it's gorgeous on your property. What with cardinals as you show in the photo below!!!

Thanks for stopping by yesterday...it's always nice to have you for company.

I enjoyed visiting your blog and plan to stop back again. I, too, had heard the last three lines of the Irish Blessing, but not the entire verse. I hope you are feeling better. Natalie
