My Dear Acquaintance: Happy New Year

The blogging world is a mysterious one.  The "friends" we meet and get to know in this virtual world become our acquaintances.  

Dictionary.com states..."Acquaintance" refers to a person with whom one is in contact. 

Synonyms:  associate, companion, friend  

Just like having a pen pal, in the blog-osphere, we get to know each other intellectually.

We get to know each other's beautiful/funny/annoying/loving children and spouses, our highest ambitions, our disappointing failures, our grandest achievements, our most sincere hopes, our ranting gripes and even our reviews of the best things to do.  I love reading the honesty with which my fellow bloggers write.

So in a world where I may never know you, Reader Friends, I think about you a lot....Peace to you in 2012 .

And, as at any good New Year party, a sing along is required...

My dear acquaintance, it's so good to know you
For strength of your hand
That is loving and giving
And a happy new year
With love overflowing
With joy in our hearts
For the blessed new year

Raise your glass and we'll have a cheer
For us all who are gathered here
And a happy new year to all that is living
To all that is gentle, kind, and forgiving
Raise your glass and we'll have a cheer
My dear acquaintance, a happy new year

All of those who are hither and yonder
With love in our hearts
We grow fonder and fonder
Hail to those who we hold so dear
And hail to those who are gathered here

And a happy new year to all that is living
To all that is gentle, young, and forgiving
Raise your glass and we'll have a cheer
My dear acquaintance, a happy new year
Happy New Year...
