Stanczyk is republishing his annual blog post: Auld Lang Syne
Count your blessings my dear readers and take heart in that inventory.
So as we draw to a close this elder year 2013 AD, I take but a moments pause to wish my friends and good readers well and much happiness and wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year.—
Verily, this jester says, “All Is Well, That Ends Well“. And 2013 has indeed ended well.
Let me endebt myself further and borrow again from the great bard to close out this year. In Shakespeare’s play, “All’s Well That Ends Well”, in the first Act, the first Scene is a quote that suits me well to use though I steal it from a woman’s lips:
That I should love a bright particular star
And think to wed it, she who is so above me:
In her bright radiance and collateral light.
My bright star is my much beloved wife, Teréza !
I love her so and our growing family and our friends too. Those who love her cannot be faulted for she is such a force of a nature and a wonder to behold. And those who fault her, do not know love. Theirs is a terrible loss indeed. Pity those fools for their jealousy and praise this jester for his steadfastness in the face of such folly. Bless my wife for her devotion made stronger and more holy for her mettle that was tempered by the trifles of miscreants.
I would like to thank my readers for another fine year. Reads of the blog are up another 15%; This month is a record month of reads and that would not be so, without you. You, my good readers, are a part of that inventory of blessings that I have counted. Interact with me on Facebook, Twitter (@Stanczyk_), and/or LinkedIn too.
Those are my closing thoughts for 2013. Better #Genealogy in the coming year to all genealogists!
Happy New Year 2014 !
