I know you see all now but heck, I like to talk to you.
St. Patrick’s Day for You….My Irish Green-Eyed Beauty:
An Irish Blessing
May there always be work
for your hands to do,
May your purse always hold
a coin or two.
May the sun always shine
On your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain
to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend
always be near you,
May God fill your heart
with gladness to cheer you.
My darling, you are being remembered by the Missionary Oblates, in two Solemn Mass Novenas, on the Feast of St. Patrick, March 17, 2014.
One mass is held in County Mayo, Ireland.
The other is at the National Shrine of the Snows, Belleville, IL.
I wish you were with us. Uncle Mark and Aunt Mary are coming to visit today. We are going to the St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday. You know how much fun that is. And this year, we will have our own St. Patrick’s Day tee shirts! Catching those potatoes, cabbage heads, carrot bunches, onions, and whatever else we will be surprised with being thrown from the floats. You remember I’m sure, that I’m the designated holder of the bag for the veggies we catch since I always duck out of the way when things are thrown from the floats! But, I’d rather not be hit in the face with a potato. It hurts, I’ve trie. So, I leave the hard part to the others.
When we get home, we will fix our Irish Stew from our catch and of course, stop off first for some green beer!
Oh yes, I hear you giggling right now. How precious is that sound!
