Dear Sage, Sabine and Sadie, may your hearts be warmed by this collection of Irish Blessings:
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
may good luck pursue you each morning and night.
May the roof above us never fall in, and may we friends gathered below never fall out.
As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in
the wrong direction.
May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.
May the Lord keep you in His hand and never close His fist too tight.
May your neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, the angels protect you, and heaven accept you.
May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night,and the road downhill all the way to your door.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, and may good luck pursue you each morning and night.
May your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.
May you live a long life, full of gladness and health. With a pocket full of gold, as the least of your wealth.
May the dreams you hold dearest, be those which come true. The kindness you spread, keep returning to you.
May the friendships you make, be those which endure; and all of your grey clouds, be small ones for sure.
And trusting in Him, to Whom we all pray; May a song fill your heart, every step of the way.
HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S (March 17, Friday)
