May the good times live on in our memories,
and may we learn lessons from the troubling times
that will make us stronger and better than ever.
Here’s to 2009:
For each and every one of you,
may it be filled with significant steps
toward the fulfillment of your fondest wishes.
In this coming new year,
let us focus on our goals and work toward our dreams,
and yet (smile)
let’s all try to go with the flow a little more
and stress a little less.
And most important,
(wave glass around to encompass the whole group)
here’s to all of you.
Appreciate yourselves and each other in the new year
as I appreciate all of you now.
Let’s focus on each other’s good points
and choose to overlook minor annoyances
to create mutual happiness and contentment in 2009.
Here’s to 2009 (raise glass): Enjoy the journey! I sure plan to have all my dreams come to realities…… Wont you join me……. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
