A Holiday Toast ~ May you Know Peace in Your Heart of Hearts! And may it know you... when you wake it up in the wee hours of the morning.









Everyone, 
at some point in their lives, 
wakes up in the middle of the night 
with the feeling 
that they are all alone in the world, 
and that nobody loves them now 
and that nobody will ever love them, 
and that they will never 
have a decent night’s sleep again 
and will spend their lives 
wandering blearily 
around a loveless landscape, 
hoping desperately 
that their circumstances will improve, 
but suspecting, 
in their heart of hearts 
that they will remain unloved forever. 
The best thing to do in these circumstances
is to wake somebody else up, 
so that they can feel this way too.
  
– Lemony Snicket
