Remembering Mom On St. Patrick's Day

        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,
So we will know them by their limping.
