Another one is here. Will it be better than the last? I doubt it, but I still have hope. The political issues aside, there is so much wrong right now I wonder if we have the wisdom to fix any of it. Having said that the word happy still opens that greeting.
So, what do we have to be happy about? If you’re still breathing after midnight, that’s something to be happy about. You bring a healthy new baby into this mixed up world, the world may be mixed up, but that baby is still something to be happy about. If you haven’t found that right person yet maybe the new year will bring him or her into your life. Let’s hope they’re a good. LOL.
Unless something really drastic happens, the sun will come up tomorrow, it might be raining where you are, but the sun will still come up and that is damn sure something to be happy about. Someone somewhere will smile at you New Years Day, wait and see, and that something to be happy about. Someone will probably piss you off tomorrow and if you manage to walk away without killing them and going to jail, that’s damn sure something to be happy about.
Tomorrow a lot of you will be sitting down to dinner with family and friends and if there are no, usually filled, empty places, then that’s not only something to be happy about, it’s something to rejoice in. If you get up tomorrow and nothing in your body hurts, you probably used good sense at your New Year’s Eve celebration and that I’m happy about. It means there is still hope for the human race and that something for us all to be happy about. If you can make an enemy a friend that something to be proud of.
If you have a family member who has pulled away from the family and they find their way home to you, God bless you and them.
I could sit here and wish you a prosperous New Year, but let’s face it, unless you win the lottery or some other extremely unusual occurrence takes place that’s not likely to happ but I do hope you have the finances to keep a roof over your head, clothes on your back, food on your table, and a job that pays you enough to limit your worries.
I do hope your home and life is filled with love, hope, trust, and happiness the whole year and few tears find their way out of your eyes unless they are happy ones and if that’s the case, I hope you spent the year crying a lot. I wish you more laughter, smiles, and kindness in your life.
As for me, I’ll be happy to wake up in the morning and even happier if I wake without something aching in this aging body. Hey, it is a part of growing older and as long as I’m doing that then I’ve got a whole lot to be happy about.
Again, Happy New Year.
