The sun has set on another year and with it have come moments of great happiness as well as the deepest of sorrows.
As we enter a new year, these are my hopes - even my prayers - for those with whom I share this mortal journey...
I hope this year is filled with blessings for those around me.
I hope that we will be courageous enough to go after our dreams.
I hope those who are burdened with sorrow will be blessed with comfort.
I hope I might be a blessing to others, instead of a burden.
I hope that I will live a healthful and healthy life.
I hope I will follow good advice, ignore bad advice, and know the difference between the two.
I hope I will end the year a better person than I began it.
May your blessings be more numerous than your trials, and may your trials turn out to be blessings in disguise.
