I have to admit when it comes to my family, I am very lucky! My daughter-in-law showed us how to really celebrate St. Patrick's Day to the fullest this year. Now most of you know that I celebrate and decorate for almost every season but, I never really have done much for St. Patrick's Day. Maybe a green pancake or too, some green confetti on the table. For weeks Krystal has been making and collecting things to transform our home to a place where surely a leprechaun would want to be. We even had a pot of gold and a couple of red headed (Iris looking) little girls, a pot of gold ( yellow jello blocks in a pot ), corn beef and cabbage soup, Irish Folk Songs playing in the background and a whole lot of beautiful decorations. So now we are sold on St. Patrick's Day. I am going to start right away getting my own decorations made for next year, just in case they aren't around here to help us.
It is late and I am beyond tired, this is probably the most I have been up in weeks and so I will close now and just leave with you a few Iris thoughts. Good night dear friends and remember how lucky we are, to have each other!
Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter.
Lullabies, dreams and love ever after.
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes...
That's the Irish for You!
"May you live all the days of your life"~ Jonathan Swift
May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.
