Sunday Inspiration: An Irish Blessing

May the road rise 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.

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day I’m sharing a favorite Irish Blessing and a photo of me in Ireland a number of years ago.

As someone who has a significant amount of Irish blood flowing through my veins, I appreciate blessings in our lives no matter where they come from.

May we bless the world every day with our love.

    Emilie, as one of your Irish fans, I am of course more than interested to know where in Ireland this photo was taken. If I had to guess I’d say Connemara or Kerry? Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you.

      County Mayo, not too far from Westport. A beautiful area. Thanks for asking.
