Happy Saint Patrick's day to all!
Give me a few friends
who will love me for what I am,
and keep ever burning
before my vagrant steps
the kindly light of hope...
And though I come not within sight
of the castle of my dreams,
teach me to be thankful for life,
and for time's olden memories
that are good and sweet.
And may the evening's twilight
find me gentle still.
and an Irish blessing...
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
I am looking forward to our Corned beef with lots of veggies and of course potatoes!
St. Patrick's day is a lovely reminder that although I have about 6 feet of snow plowed up in front of my window - - Spring with all it's green finery will be here in just a bit. I'm wishing a little for days ago when growing up there was also the promise of new little animals all over the farm.
