In Honor of St. Patrick's Day ...

I learned this Old Irish blessing back in high school when we sang it in choir and it's been a favorite of mine ever since. The words have always spoken to me in a way most prayers and blessings never have.

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.

Now I'm off to celebrate the tiny bit of Irish blood flowing through my veins and enjoy this gorgeous day with some of my oldest friends. :)
