Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Happy New Year

I was drinking my morning coffee, wondering what to write for a New Years post. All I could think of was the Irish blessing that I know I have written before:

“May the very worst day in you future, be not nearly as bad as the very best day in your past”. My very  best wishes to all in this new year.

Got to the computer and checked email and there is a message from my wonderful sister-in-law Vicky. It is just to good not to share.


May peace fill all the empty spaces around you

And in you, may contentment answer all your wishes.

May comfort be yours, warm and soft like a sigh.

And may the coming year show you that every day

Is really a first day, a new year.

Let abundance be your constant companion,

So that you have much to share.

May mirth be near you always,

Like a lamp shining brightly

On the many paths you travel.

May you be true love.

    Happy New Year to you and all Bill’s blogging ‘friends’. I wish you joy and laughter, singing and dancing, success and prosperity and above all …. good health. May the doors open to the “magic” in your lives + the ease to embrace all of life. 2010 = a number 3 which is the number for creativity and communication. Therefore carry on communicating on the ‘blog’ and the creativity to ‘draw’ into your lives all the magic of your dreams and desires.
    Angel Blessings to you all.
    Love, Light and Peace

    Dear Bill,
    It’s been crazy busy here!! Sure hope this post finds you in good spirits and that God’s peace and presence has been with you throughout the Christmas season and that He continues to guide you througout the New Year. Have a happy one!! That goes for all the regulars (and not so regular) to this welcoming and safe spot.
    Thinking about you everyday and praying for you always, Wiseman.

    Dear Bill,
    Sorry about adding this a little late: So sorry to hear about the pneumonia thing!!! Take care of yourself and rest up. I figure a good dose of chocolate can fix just about anything–give it a try!!??
    Praying for your fast recovery from this glitch, Wiseman.

    Hi Irene, you said it correctly. This pneumonia thing is but a little glitch or tiny bump on the highway of life.

    Peace, comfort, abundance, mirth. Sounds like a wonderful way to be filled and fulfilled, and fulfilling for those who enter our lives.
