St. Pat's Day

I have to admit, I love St. Patrick's Day. I love the stories that my Grandmother tells about the toughness of her Grandmother and my Uncle George would tell so many stories from my Dad's side of the family. 
Grannie tells of how everyone said that her Grandmother could do a jig on a stump. Heck, I have trouble walking a straight line some days so it's amazing that there are those genes rattling around in me. (the "jig" gene)

I'll share an Irish Blessing with you this day:

May you be blessed with the strength of heaven-
the light of the sun 
and the radiance of the moon
the splendor of fire-
the speed of lightning-
the swiftness of wind-
the depth of the sea-
the stability of earth and the firmness of rock. 
                From the Breastplate of Saint Patrick
