“St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.” A. Cook
It is a beautiful day here in Tennessee, with a splendid forecast for a dry week with lots of sun. I’d say the luck of the Irish has come our way.
St. Patrick’s Day is such a festive time to me, and I am neither Irish (well probably I am a little bit- aren’t we all?) nor Catholic. But I love the joyous spirit of the day, and the hints of magical highjinks, and the promise of a rainbow with that elusive pot o’ gold at the end. I loved “Darby O’Gill and the Little People” as a child, and I showed my classrooms how to do an Irish jig when I was teaching. I still display a leprechaun or two in my home today.
The shamrock typically has three leaves – one each for faith, hope, and love. If there’s a fourth, then that’s for luck!
It is such a day of good will and friendship! What’s better than that? Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all!
A wish that every day for you
will be happy from the start
and may you always have good luck
and a song within your heart.
