So, I'm maintaining!

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. - Anna Quindlen.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. - Eleanor Roosevelt

emoticon Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my St Patrick's blogs and Irish Blessings Blogs! emoticon

I had a great time digging out some of them and always have a stash of Maxine since she's my favorite (and I'm a lot like her!) Found so many great Irish Blessings I will post them for a few more days. Hope you got in a little Irish jig and some corned beef and cabbage!
