Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

below are a few Irish blessings and sayings for your day!

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 your neighbours respect you
Troubles neglect you
The angels protect you
And heaven accept you

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

Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter
Lullabies, dreams and love ever after
Poems and songs with pipes and drums
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes,
That's the Irish for you!

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle

'Twas St. Patrick himself sure that sets it
And the sun of his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it,
It grows through the bog, through the brake through mireland,
And they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light
May good luck pursue you each morning and night

Great blessings! Happy belated St. Patrick's Day. We were served green potatoes at the restaurant where we ate, but didn't have green beer. :)
