Our Irish Blessings

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Brian and I had that blessing said at the end of our wedding Mass. We love it. Someday, we would like to have it painted on the wall of our entry-way. If you had told us on our wedding day that we would have had FOUR Irish blessings after being married only six years, we never would have beleived you!

Ben and Maggie in all their green. (Ben is wearing green bunny ears and a beer-barrel necklace.)

This is the green dinner that I cooked. Green cups & straws, broccoli, green grapes, green-dyed rice (Maggie helped to make that), and green Jell-o. Somehow, I just couldn't bring myself to dye our chicken green too. I was afraid the kids might not eat it if it were green.

Betsy and Bree, our "Wee Irish Blessings."
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
