Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’ll keep this short and sweet since I know there’s a lot of parades, day drinking, and other green-clad fun to take part in.
Outside of knowing how to cut loose, the Irish have a few other skills. If you’re several beers in they may be hard to think of so I’ll help get you started.One of those skills is writing. From plays to novels to limericks, the Irish have a way with words. To see you through the days events, I thought I’d leave you with a few of those words, and a tried and true Irish blessing.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon you face.
May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
To those who are lucky enough to be Irish, enjoy your day. To those who aren’t, enjoy being Irish for the day. And to all celebrating today, sláinte!
…just for fun:
