Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. My Irish heritage is strong and I am proud to celebrate it.

This year is an extra-special celebration for me because I am celebrating this year in Ireland. I have the great honor of watching my youngest child march in two different St. Patrick’s parades here (what a way to end my career as a band mom, right?). And, of course, I am touring southwestern Ireland, and making time to visit a few spots dear to my family history and heritage.

And so, in honor of the occasion here are a few of my favorite Irish blessings to help bring you a bit of the Irish Spirit.

You are more than welcome to share them wherever you’d like. I only ask that you do not alter them in any way as they are all my original designs.

I am also a collector of Irish Blessings and [clean] limericks, so if you have one to share with me, please add it in the comment section below.

A very traditional Irish Blessing to Start Things Off

When I saw this view on my Colorado prairie, it instantly brought to mind this beautiful blessing

Sounds like a wonderful blessing to me–and aren’t all our hearts a little Irish today?

This one was shared with me by one of my dearest friends, and whenever I see it think of her.

Sounds like a lovely life to me.
