“Hope Smiles from the 
threshold of the year to come, 
Whispering 
'it will be happier'...” 
 Alfred Tennyson





“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.




May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire 
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that 
you Reach For, 
May your arms 
Never Tire.” 
               D. Simone
