May the roads rise to meet you,
May the winds be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again
May GOD hold you----
In the hollow of HIS hand.
My mom was 100% Irish since her parents (my grandparents) came from Ireland many years
ago. So I grew up IRISH pretty much.....my dad was Welsh so he joined in the fun with all
his brother in laws and loved it. We had many family gathering and sang songs and my mom
played the piano quite a bit in those day. I have beautiful memories even though all of the siblings she has are gone now along with both my parents. One UNCLE is left, the baby of the family. My uncle is 94 and now in a N.Home since he fell and cannot stay at home with all his bath, bed and facilities are upstairs....so we visit him every week and we are all his
nieces and nephews.....Our kids visit him too and he loves it. My grandkids and their IRISH
school of dance came to the place he lives and did a Special event for the residents and him
last week. He loved it and his smile went from ear to ear.
My kids and grandkids and our family still celebrate the holiday and we play IRISH music and gather together with precious memories of mom and dad and the grand family and friends.
My grandma always made Irish soda bread, then my mom did, then me, and now my youngest daughter has taken this Tradition on, which makes me happy. I think traditions are
wonderful and love to keep sharing. My sis celebrates with her family too and they have the traditional corn beef and cabbage meal after mass and the parade for the whole family too.
So whatever you do tomorrow, even if you are not IRISH, wear green, be happy, sing songs,
be safe and enjoy the day! God bless.
Blessings to all,
