Green for St. Patrick’s Day

I don’t think I have Irish ancestors, but since today is St. Patrick’s Day, I am sending you an Irish blessing with a heart full of thankfulness for each of you.

“May there always be work for your hands to do,
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.”
― Irish Blessing

And here’s a picture of nature wearing green last spring. Just think—Spring 2014 starts in just a few days!

Are you wearing green today?


  1. On St. Patrick's Day everybody is Irish! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  2. Happy St Paddy's Day and do you know I do not own one stitch of green nor do I have green ribbon or green wool- nothing green.I shall draw a shamrock and put it on our fridge...

  3. We're all Irish today, Tina! Love that photo with all that greenery. I can't wait to see some around here.

  4. Love all the green grass in that picture. Happy St. Patrick's Day Tina!!

  5. I'm wearing green, but it's a mint green (all I have - unless I wear a Christmas shirt) and I got pinched by one of my boys! Happy st. Patrick's day :-)

  6. EVERYONE is Irish today. So celebrate :)

  11. Sweet blessing! I am wearing purple and gold (LSU shirt). I only have one green sweater and I may wear it to birding class tonight. Hope you have a delightful day!

  12. Everyone's Irish today, friend! :-) Happy St. Paddy's Day! I am a quarter Irish and have donned the green (as have the kids, and even my Mexican hubby!). My eyes are green so there's my default green.

    (I am SO READY for spring!)

  13. A wonderful blessing -- and yes, I'm wearing green. Happy St. Patrick's day!

  14. I'm not wearing green because I don't really have any that is easy to find. Green is not my favorite color. But I might try to dig some out because we are going out tonight to listen to Irish music. I have an Irishman or two buried in my very crowded woodpile, but I'm mostly French.

  15. My favourite Irish Blessing my Grandma used that one a lot. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and the best of the luck to you too. Hug B

  18. I am so ready for some green in our surroundings. Hope your St. Patrick's Day was filled with luck!!
