Happy St. Patrick’s Day…From Me to You

March 17th! It’s a day of green beer, a green river, and even green milkshakes.

It’s always struck me as a day very much like Valentine’s Day.

There’s nothing compulsory about the celebration. It’s meant to be fun in nature and everyone is welcome.

If you look back on the history of the origins of Valentines or St. Patrick’s Day, there is violence, religion, and politics involved. The modern version is nothing like that.

A few years ago I had the opportunity to visit Ireland and I loved it. The people were friendly and inviting, and I could listen to them all day. I didn’t like the Guiness (shh…don’t tell them as that is the national drink.)

So, for today, I hope you can relax and don something green in the celebration of the wee leprechaun, the light and friendly lilt of the Irish voice, and the disposition of a smile and a wink as we get on with the day.

Irish Blessings

May your
trouble be
less and
your blessings
be more and
nothing but 
happiness come
your door.

May the road rise up
to meet you.
May the wind be always
at your back.
May the sun shine warm
upon your face,
And rain fall soft 
upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you 
In the palm of His hand. 

Whether you have a drop of Irish in you or not, it doesn’t matter. We’re all the same when it comes right down to it. Enjoy the day. Take the time to smile and count your blessings. And, may the luck o’ the Irish alway be with you.

  1. Everyone is a bit Irish today! I have shamrock socks to celebrate and your post reminded me of MacDonald’s green milkshakes – I will try to fit that in today ☘️💚

      1. As someone said…we are all Irish today! So happy Saint Patrick’s day.

      1. Thanks Faye! I hope your doing well too! I’m glad to be back! I migrated my blog to a self hosted site and it took nearly 2 months! I still have some work to do and figure out somethings. But I can’t want to start writing again! I also miss my blogger friends! Great to hear from you ❤️

      2. It took forever to migrate! I want to expand my blog, which is going to take time but something I have been wanting to do for a long time. Instead of renting my site I know own it and it is cheaper but I do have to maintain it myself and make sure it is up to date. We shall see how it goes!

      3. Wow…it’s like you went pro! Good for you. I’ll be able to say I knew you before you became all big and famous! 😊😎
