As twilight descended on the last ever evening of 2013, I grew pensive.
My thoughts turned to my beautiful far away friends on the other side of this wide brown land. How much they are so like sisters to me in every sense.
And, I poured a drink.
Now, I would’ve liked a drop of Drambuie, or even better, an aged Scotch whisky - which seemed fitting on the eve of a new year - but, as this was my second choice, my tipple was Kahlua. On the rocks.
My gorgeous friends, I cherish our many memories, and miss you each and every day. With tears in my eyes, I sing to you,
For old long ago, my dear
For old long ago,
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
For old long ago.
May the bonds of love and sister-ship stay strong and never be broken, as time erodes the years.
Til we meet again ♥
And, to my new, lovely friends here in blogland, I wish you all…
laughter and joy,
comfort and contentment,
good health in abundance,
personal fulfillment and prosperity,kind words and gentle hugs to soothe the tears that may dampen your cheek,
great company when you seek it, quiet solitude when you need it,
precious time to follow your dreams, and may your inspirational muse be always by your side.
May your struggles be minor, and successes be great.
May you be blessed with a richness in mind, body and spirit to rival all the kingdoms of gold.
And, may inner peace and balance calm you at times when the world around seems in turmoil.
Keep your family and friends close, and hug your furkids a lot!
I raise my glass and toast to friends, old and new ~ you're welcome at my table, anytime.
