Happy New Year Blessing

Recipe for New Year

1. Take twelve fine, full-grown months; See that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate, cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; Pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all the past—have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time.

2.  Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time. 

3.  Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing— don’t do it), prayer, meditation, and one well-selected resolution.

4.  Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor

 Blessing for New Year

May God/Our Infinite Spirit make your year a happy one!

Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain, But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes.

Not by making your path easy, But by making you sturdy to travel any path.

Not by taking hardships from you, But by taking fear from your heart.

Not by granting you unbroken sunshine, But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows.

Not by making your life always pleasant, But by showing you when people and their causes need you most, and by making you anxious to be there to help.

Love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
