Old Irish Blessing:
May the road
rise up to meet you;
May the wind be always at your back,
The sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again, may God
Hold you in the hollow of his hand.
May there always be work for your hands;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
Our adopted St. Patrick's Day frog, Patty!
