The Passing of the Year . . .
Believe it or not it has taken me over an hour just to get to this point this morning. The computer has had to be rebooted several times. Pages are taking ages to load, or not loading at all. It's been a complete and total exercise in frustration. Some days are just like that. I am all out of time now and so I will just leave you with a thought to end the year on, and then at some point when this blasted machine decides to co-operate, I will come back with something profound or worth reading!
The Passing of the Year
What did you do for me? Said I as I watched the dying year;
I would settle accounts with you before you go from here.
You failed to bring me all the things you promised at the start;
the fulfilment of my hopes, the wishes of my heart.
The Old Year opened his fading eyes and said reproachingly,
I gave you all I had to give, but what did you do for me?
I gave you opportunities and chances that you spurned,
many mercies undeserved and happiness unearned.
Had you only known, he said, I was a friend to you.
And as that Old Year breathed his last I knew his words were true . . .
I had been ungrateful, but it's too late now, I said.
Forgive me Lord, and make me wiser
in the year ahead.
In The English Kitchen today . . . Granny's Beef Enchiladas.
On this, the last day of 2015, I want to wish each and every one of you a very Happy New Year! May the coming year bring you good health and more love, blessings and joy than your cup can hold! I have enjoyed sharing with you over these past twelve months and look forward to another twelve months in the year to come! Don't forget!
