“St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time ~ a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.” ~ Adrienne Cook
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, dear friends. I do hope wherever you may be, you have a view of beautiful green. Isn’t it is such a glorious sight to see our land as she ‘once again,’ trades her winter brown for magnificent green? The beauty of the green countryside is certainly a sight to treasure.
“Ireland is a land of poets and legends, of dreamers and rebels. All of these have music woven through and around them. Tunes for dancing or for weeping, for battle or for love.” ~ Nora Roberts
Wishing Bridge, Gap of Dunloe (Dún Lóich) Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland
“For ’tis green, green, green, where the ruined towers are gray.
And it’s green, green, all the happy night and day;
Green of leaf and green of sod,
green of ivy on the wall,
And the blessed Irish shamrock
with the fairest green of all.”
~ Mary Elizabeth Blake
On this special Sunday, I hope you have plans to celebrate the day. The Irish immigrants have made significant contributions to our country and other countries as well. We are fortunate to have in our view(directly across the street), a lovely stone cottage built in 1934 by Irish stone masons. The Irish have also given us wonderful food, beautiful music, and dance. So today, let us be grateful for all the hard-working Irish people, their skills, and their many talents.
Wishing you and yours a day of joy.
May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow.
May the soft winds freshen your spirit.
May the sunshine brighten your heart
May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you.
And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.
An Irish Blessing
