As the old year slips away

Posted by Picasa

I found this clip art at Graphics Fairy. Notice the date, 1910! It will be 100 years old tomorrow.
My mother-in-law had a daily calender thing (I now have it) that you roll over each day, and there you would find another saying. I have no idea who wrote these sayings, they could be well known, but I thought that I would share December 31st with you.
"And as the old year slips away,
He kindly with him takes
The pages we have blurred
and marred
With failures and mistakes.
The blighted hopes and needless
fears are gone beyond recall.
And ours once more the fair,
clean page
The New Year brings to all."
To all of my blog friends out there, and hopefully many more to come, even if you are just stopping by for a visit...........
I wish all of you A Happy (and the most important of all), a Healthy New Year!
