My prayer is for the Lord to grant you a Happy and Blessed New Year. Even though I'm a reformed and uber Protestant...I leave you with this quote from the Pope.
Yes, joy enters the hearts of those who put themselves at the service of the lowly and poor. God abides in those who love like this and their souls rejoice. If, instead, people make an idol of happiness, they lose their way and it is truly hard for them to find the joy of which Jesus speaks. Pope Benedict XVI
