May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist,
your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your
urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your
psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.
May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and
your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your
triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count
and your mortgage interest not rise.
May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table,
together with your beloved family and cherished friends.
May you find the food better, the environment quieter,
the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure more
fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do
May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what
others see in you delight them. May someone love you
enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your
blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.
May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls
until you finish dinner, may the commercials on TV not
be louder than the program you have been watching, and
may your check book and your budget balance - and
include generous amounts for charity.
May you remember to say "I love you" at least once a day
to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings;
but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse,
your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.
And may we live in a world at peace and with the
awareness of God's love in every sunset, every flower's
unfolding petals, every baby's smile, every lover's
kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat
of our heart.
