Happy New Year

As the year comes to a close, I want to thank all my friends and family who have helped me make 2010 a success. I could not have done it without you. May 2011 be filled with joy, peace and good health to all. And as there is a little Irish in all of us (a bit more in me I am afraid) here is a blessing for us all:

May your joys be as bright as the morning,

And your sorrows merely be shadows that fade,

In the sunlight of love.

May you have enough

happiness to keep you sweet.

Enough trials to keep you strong.

Enough sorrows to keep you human.

Enough hope to keep you happy.

Enough failure to keep you humble.

Enough success to keep you eager.

Enough friends to give you comfort.

Enough faith and courage in yourself to banish sadness.

Enough wealth to meet your needs.

And one thing more: enough

determination to make each day a more wonderful day

than the day before.
