Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here are a few Irish Blessings from me to you!

"May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain,
tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you,
those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire."

"May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand."

"May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
and Irish blessings in your heart!"

"May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing
can harm you."

"May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you"

Since I married Irish, we treat St. Patrick's day with a little bit of patriotism around our house. But I won't be making Irish stew this year as Amanda has another one of her big dance practices over the supper hour, so we'll be having something quick afterward, but I will be making the traditional green parfaits for a treat afterward in keeping with our family's tradition!
