And a Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of you! You know what they say! Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day. I'm actually partially of Irish descent. My Dad's Mum was a Kelly. This is one of my favorite holidays. It's all about fun and celebration with none of the work of the other holidays. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and Easter. It just seems easy, especially for someone like me, to get mired down with the work and forget what the true meaning of the holiday is. At least on St. Patrick's Day I can get up, put on some good Irish Celtic music, fix a pan of corned beef and cabbage and enjoy myself. Slainte!!
My gift to you this St. Patrick's Day is the following Irish Blessing. Take the time to really "listen" to what it is saying to you.
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine down upon your face
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hands.
