Today is St. Patrick’s Day. There are so many ways people celebrate this day. Everyone, all of a sudden, has Irish roots. Well, I’m not here to tell you to do it different. Scottish, Irish, American, Polish, whatever you are I wish you a day full of Hope and Love and Prosperity!
I’m sad that it has very little to do with St. Patrick………… but that’s the way of most holidays. As a kid I had no clue what it was, other than I HAD to wear green or I would be pinched by some mean boy at school. As an adult I see it as another reason for many to fill the bars and get really drunk. I think it’s gone a bit extreme to the original meaning.
But for me, I love to give you a blessing. The blessing of the Irish (or Scottish). Last year I posted a few Celtic Blessings that I made up and want to pass them onto you again with one or two added.
This one is Irish/Scottish:
“May the wee bairns of the loch be ever with you
and may the wee folk of the clover
never darken the doors of your emerald hut”
“May the cry of the banshee never drift across the waters
and darken the gates of your shamrock garden”
“May the potatoes of your field forever fill your bellies
and may your grains produce much stout”
“May the lucky stars and rainbow marshmallows
forever fall into your pot o’ gold each mornin'”
“May the cleansing mist rolling o’re the Loch Gently quench your thirsty heart”
Enjoy! Be safe!
