Happy St. Patty's Day! An Irish Blessing

An Old Irish Blessing

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.

As a young girl I remember my momma
was very interesting in our family roots.
So she began to go through both sides of my
families geneology.
She was very interested to learn that my
granddaddy Hanvey's family many
years ago came over in the 1860
Irish Potatoe Famine...and
their families settled in the North, New England
states and my daddy's family
settled in South Carolina.

I also have wonderful memories of  family
gatherings for Corned Beef and Cabbage
dinners.  Now, my mom still
has these same dinners each year but
I have to miss them due to where
we live.
I guess I still have my memories to
keep me happy but sure wished
I coulda been there this year to
help them celebrate
St. Patricks Day!

Wishing you all a little *Luck-o-the-Irish* Today!

Hi Lorena,
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and your dear family. You have wonderful memories and I so can relate being Irish. We too had cornbeef and cabbage and I made it to this year in my slow cooker yesterday. With soda bread it will be yummy this evening.

Blessing to you dear friend and May God Bless Your Path Always.
Love you, Celestina Marie
