Keep those Irish Eyes Smiling

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Humor is not a trick , not jokes. Humor is a presence in the world- like grace- and shines on everybody. Garrison Keillor

Today on St Patrick's Day I am reminded of the saying when Irish eyes are smiling. The Irish are a happy jovial people . They usually spend this day at the local pub drinking green beer and celebrate with love and laughter and family.

We all usually join them . Their are parades and happiness and more laughter. Laughter makes our lives better. It strengthens our immune system. Makes our colds end faster. It makes life more fun , it easies stress. Laughter makes life bearable. It heals wounds and makes broken hearts whole again.

So on the this beautiful cheerful fun loving happy day I would like to leave you with an Irish Blessing.

May God grant you always,
A Sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A Sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you,
Laughter to cheer you.
Faithful friends to near you.
And whenever you pray ,
Heaven to hear you.
An Irish Blessing

May the rest of your lives be filled with love and laughter my friends. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
