Irish Blessings


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.



An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


















A Wish for a Friend
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers-
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours-
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

  2. The colorful paper chain rainbow and shamrock rainbow are bursts of fun! And it's always fun to find a 4 leaf clover :o)

    Thank you also for sharing the Irish Prayer and the wishes. I know of the Old Irish Blessing, but think the other two are ones I had not heard.

    Blessings & Aloha!

anchored

My word for 2018. 
Anchored.
To keep from drifting.
Representative of stability and strength.
Connected. Held.  Grounded.  Positioned.  Fixed.
Movable.
Small, yet, essential part of a bigger entity.

It is a standard by which to live; a goal for which to strive.
Anchored.



choose your easy

More and more I am seeing this thought meme-ing its way through social media...
"I wish it were as easy to lose weight as it is to gain weight." I beg your pardon...

Whoever said it was easy to gain weight?

What part about gaining weight is any easier than losing it?
I gained weight consistently over the course of the first 41 years of my life.
I do not recall those years as easy ones where my weight was concerned.

What is easy about being the heaviest person in your family? Or in your class?
What is easy about having to buy clothes that are labeled as "husky"? Or later on in life, have to shop in a special section of the store for "women's sizes" or even in stores that only carry "women's sizes".
What is that supposed to even mean...women's sizes???
What is easy about feeling as if you have no self control?
What is easy about eating until your pants are too tight before you ever get up from the table?
What is easy about feeling guilty for…
