Thought for today:
"A very happy and blessed New Year to all my family and friends. May this coming year be ever kind to you and give you the courage to triumph over your vices and the wisdom to embrace your virtues. May you come to realise your dreams, rediscover your strengths, muster your will power, strengthen your resolve and rejoice in the many simple pleasures that life will bring your way. May you foster and protect family and friend as though there was no tomorrow and come to love all strangers with a familiarity that suggested no yesterday. Know beyond all else that life will teach you that hope smiles endlessly from the threshold of the year to come and that goodness awaits your future thoughts and actions. Never refrain from giving because you have but pennies to give; instead give what you can with a good heart and know that your all is always enough.
Think no longer on the bad things of the past year because last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice; your voice that we all await to hear.
So resolve to find that New Voice in the New Year and when you do, go shout it from the roof top so that all of 2016 may hear it loud and clear and know that you've finally arrived and mean business. Happy New Year everyone. Bill and Sheila xxx" January 1st, 2016.
