a mOrning wish

"The sun is just rising on the morning of another day, the first day of the new year. What can I wish that this day, that this year, may bring to me?

Nothing that shall make the world of others poorer, nothing at the expense of others; but just those few things which in their coming do not stop with me but touch me rather, as they pass and gather strength:

*A few friends who understand me, and yet remain my friends.

*A work to do which has real value without which the world would feel the poorer.

*A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed.

*An understanding heart. (",)

*A sight of the eternal hills and unresting sea, and of something beautiful the individual hand has made.

*A sense of humor and the power to laugh.

*A little leisure with nothing to do.

*A few moments of quiet, silent meditation. The sense of the presence of God.

*And the patience to wait for the coming of these things, with the wisdom to know them when they come."
