New Years Resolution

Originally posted 31 December 2007

Marilou and myself along with Michael and Mariel would like to wish everyone connected with Bethany as well as all our family and friends in Talakag a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Be a FriendBe a friend. You don't need money:Just a disposition sunny;Just the wish to help anotherGet along some way or other;Just a kindly hand extendedOut to one who's unbefriended;Just the will to give or lend,This will make you someone's friend.Be a friend. You don't need glory.Friendship is a simple story.Pass by trifling errors blindly,Gaze on honest effort kindly,Cheer the youth who's bravely trying,Pity him who's sadly sighing;Just a little labor spendOn the duties of a friend.Be a friend. The pay is bigger(Though not written by a figure)Than is earned by people cleverIn what's merely self-endeavor.You'Il have friends instead of neighborsFor the profits of your labors;You'Il be richer in the endThan a prince, if you're a friend.
