I'm counting down to St. Patrick's Day. This is just one of the days of the year that I remember my Mom. My mother was 100% Irish and very proud of her Celtic heritage. One of her favorite days of the year was St. Patrick's Day (March 17th). I like to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in honor of Mom. I don't drink green beer (why ruin a perfectly good refreshment with food coloring), but I do wear green and listen to music by the Chieftans.
This is one of my favorite Irish blessings:
May those that love us, love us.
And those that don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he doesn’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
