Hi y'all. A friend sent me this and I thought it was nice
May we all be inscribed in the Book of LIFE for a Healthy and a Happy New Year!!!
May you be blessed with good neighbors who are there
for you when you need them, and who are not around too
much when you don't need them.
May the clothing styles of yesterday come back so I
can wear all that stuff, that I don't have the heart
to throw away.
Let Nehru jackets, and bell bottom trousers, and slim
ties, and Hawaiian prints become fashionable for men
again, so that I can be in style again.
And may empire waistlines, and mumus, and granny
skirts come back for women. After all, why should
those foreigners -- Armani, Gucci, Versace and
Borsini dictate what we wear?
Instead, may those great American Jewish designers....
Poly and Ester, reign supreme, and may they bring back
those wonderful stretch leisure suits, and sun bonnets
and high button shoes, which are no longer seen
anywhere, except maybe in Century Village.
May the expressions "you know", and "like", and
"whatever" be retired
May we sing songs that are singable, that have lyrics
that are understandable, and may we not have to wear
ear plugs when our children play music in their rooms.
In this new year that now begins, may your hair, your
teeth, your facelift and your stocks not fall, and may
your blood pressure, your cholesterol and your
mortgage interest rate not rise.
May the world enjoy a year that is free of hurricanes,
earthquakes, fires, drought, and political speeches,
which produce the most wind of all.
May you have a spouse, or a child or a friend, or a
grandchild, who loves you, even though they really
know you. And may you learn that giving love away
freely without strings is the surest way of receiving
it in return.
And, in the darkest moments of this new year, and
there will be some dark moments, be assured of that,
in those dark moments of the year, may you remember
that you are not alone, that God is with you, and that
God loves you, that is why He made you just a little
bit lower than the angels.
May you win the lottery, and thereby acquire a host of
long lost relatives, and may you remember your synagogue
or church when you win.
May your insurance pay whatever your doctor charges,
without insisting on any further investigation, and
may the IRS accept whatever you pay, without insisting
on any further investigation too.
May your children or your grandchildren receive a good
report in school.
And may you receive a good report too, from your
dentist, from your ophthalmologist, from your
dermatologist, from your cardiologist, from
your gastroenterologist, from your podiatrist, from
your urologist, and ultimately, from your God.
May your bank statement and your budget both balance,
and may they both include generous amounts for
May we discover evidence of civilized life on Mars
this year, and, more important, may we discover
evidence of civilized life, here on Earth.
May you receive a letter from a long lost friend, and
a kiss from a long indifferent spouse or child and
may you see a smile on the face of your doorman, your
mailman, and when you look in the mirror, every day.
May you feast your eyes often in this new year on
green trees, on blue waters, and best of all, on the
happy face of a grandchild, whom you have just
May we keep rage off of the freeways, and out of the
workplace, and out of our homes, and direct it instead
at racism, at poverty and at all the evils that we
May we learn in this new year that what really counts
the most is not the years but the days, not the
machines we have in our lives, but the people we have
in our lives, not how much we can accumulate but how
much we can share, and with whom.
May you have enough to give you contentment, and may
you have enough left over, so that you can be
May the telemarketers not call you during dinner time,
and instead, may you receive calls, from long lost
friends, and from new ones too.
And may those old fashioned expressions, "thank you",
"pardon me", "after you", and "you look lovely", come
back into use instead.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
