Happy St. Patrick's Day To Everyone


It was a beautiful weekend for me--dinner last night and a brunch today. Plenty of chatter and plenty of laughter--which I desperately needed to do. I am 100% Irish descent and had the opportunity to live in Ireland. I thought back and remembered an Irish prayer

May you see God’s light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
when the shadows fall –
You do not walk alone.

And a second 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.

Yes we must remember we do not walk alone and we have a friend in each of us to each of us. I thought about last night and today and realized I am blessed in life, never believing I deserved to be blessed. I have been able to walk away from the darkness of the abuse. It was not an easy journey--always remember someone is always here for you.
