Post Your Favorite Toast Contest

As the upcoming season of celebrations approaches, it's time to raise a glass to friendships, amazing events (big and small), happenings that touched the heart and soul, successes, laughter at silly things ... and whatever it is that you have to be thankful for during this time of year!

I wanted to share my favorite toasts in hopes that you would share some of yours. There will be a prize for the best entry....

May the dreams you hold dearest
Be those which come true,
The kindness you spread
Keep returning to you!

May the friendships you make,
Be those which endure,
And all your grey clouds
Be small ones for sure.

May you live a long life
Full of gladness and health,
With a pocket full of gold
As the least of your wealth.

Here's to you and here's to me,
Good friends we will always be!
But, if by chance we disagree,
To 'el with you! Here's to me!"

There are good ships
And there are wood ships,
And there are ships that sail the sea,
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may that always be.

My friends are the best friends -
Loyal, willing and able.
Now let's get to drinking-
All glasses off the table!"

"May the hinges of friendship never rust, nor the wings of love lose a feather."

Laura - that is a beautiful toast! Thank you so much...

This is completely inappropriate for A Legendary Affair, and I don't agree with the sentiment, but it is still a favorite of mine:
Here's to the men that we love
Here's to the men that love us
But the men that we love
Arent the men who love us
So to hell with the men
Here's to us!

Joyce ----- I have always loved this toast, which I learned from you decades ago. I say it (perhaps a bit too) often - and always picture your cute smiling face when I say it. Too funny!!!!!

To my best friend, that puts the
Color Green in my day,
To the sunlight that dances in your eyes of Green, the way it did back in May.
To the Good times,
Joy, and Laughter you bring in my Life,
To the smile you wear,
and the hope of someday becoming
my wife...

Wow, Reuben! I didn't know you had it in you! There must be a story behind that toast...or is lyrics to a song I should know???

Reuben said...

That's my own toast ( minus the peanut butter and bananas)! Nope it's not a song either......
