an irish prayer

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
 For every sigh, a sweet song,
 And an answer for each prayer.




I miss you all so much...and I think you all know who you are! This is the first time I have had time to really sit down and get on here in quite a while.

Does anyone have any plans for St. Patrick's Day? I plan on finding some good corned beef and cabbage somewhere tomorrow, even if I end up making it! Come noontime, I hope to be living it up like an Irishwoman should. 

May joy and peace surround you,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now,
And bless you evermore.

Oh, someday Ireland, I will see you. Someday...

Ireland is on the top of our must see list. My hubby is 100% Irish, and he is dying to make his way over there. Your post made me long for a nice long vacation!
