Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

It is totally fascinating to me that this event, changing from one calendar year to another, just about brings the whole world together in a big 'ol group therapy session. We will share our mistakes, shortcomings, and heartaches. Then we share our hopes and dreams, we try to draw strength with what life threw our way. We will listen, and encourage one another, and vow to be better people to ourselves and each other. Just how cool is that???

Auld Lang Syne (days gone by)

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old times since ?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
And surely I’ll buy mine !And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.


We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad
have roared since auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

Yes! I love the renewing of our lives, the opening up of the heart and mind, even better than Christmas! And, when we pour all of this out, sort it into our goals and needs, it is therapeudic as well!
