A Toast From My Heart

index

Let us drink in

the sight of each other

and let loose

those preconceived dreams

keeping us from

breathing in the essence

of the New Year.

With these we will face

a blessedness comparable to none.

Come,   drink and be merry.

We will welcome one another

forever more and be glad.

Salut!

    John, I lift my glass of clean water to satiate a deep thirst. May the New Year be uneventful!

    This toast feels so right. I wish for you, Veronica, a new year that will bring you what you want, but most of all, what you need. Many blessings to you.

    Sally, I accept good tidings as a victory of great worth. From good friends it is doubly so. For you also, a good year.

    Suzanne, thank you for your good wishes. I wish for you what your heart requires. And I thank you for your comments when I needed them most.

    How could you not love it! It’s so freeing. The first two lines are great, as they could be interpreted in two ways, both of which are just fine. Yes, a happy, happy new year to you too!

    Claudia, I like to think that this toast was lifted from this blog in many a gathering to wish each other the best of times. We will welcome one another forever. Thank you.
