Here's an Irish blessing someone recently sent to me.  It's a blessing I pray for all of you listeners to this Moment of Hope today and throughout the 2012 year: May God grant you always a sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering angel so nothing can harm you,

Laughter to cheer you,

Faithful friends to hear you,

And whenever you pray,

Heaven to hear you.

Do we really need anything more?  If I had this just for today, much less the entire year, I'd be a greatly blessed man.
