This is dedicated to my family, friends and friends yet to meet.
"IF I HAD A WAND..."
If I had a magic wand this new year,
I would shower you with…
Serenity to bring you inner peace.
Fresh waters of spring to rejuvenate you
and wash your sorrows away.
Abundant tears of joy to bring you the essence of love.
And may you learn from any tears of sadness you encounter.
Abundant blessings from heaven to bring you laughter and joy.
And patience for those sour moments that may come your way.
Cherish your memories, but open your heart to new adventures.
Cherish yesterday, but embrace each new day with a kiss.
Cherish love, it is priceless, yet it has no value if not shared.
Love the moment that tomorrow brings, and treat it with respect.
Love who you are today, you are a gifted child of God.
Love is fragile yet spirited, it is the nectar of life.
Rejoice in each new day, it brings surprises that keep you young.
Smile each new morning in the mirror of life, it may wink back.
Rejoice in the mysteries of life and seize each new day empowered.
Love is a nectar that must be given and received without condition.
Love those around you that you find easy to love.
Love those around you that have no nectar,
they too are a gifted child of God.
