Happy St. Patricks Day!

My eldest son Ryan gave me this dear Irish mug for Christmas in 2007. The Irish blessing on the page is from the reverse side of the mug. Having a redhead in the family really launched us off on the Irish path. My husband claims his family is more Scotch than Irish... but oh well that doesn't seem to deter our boys. Over the years all 3 boys have become attached to the idea that they have some Irish heritage, and we've collected a variety of Irish shirts, drinking glasses, socks, etc. We all have a soft spot for Ireland, and hopefully we'll get to visit Ireland ... someday...

I wish you all a Happy St. Patricks Day !!

May there always be work for your hands to do
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. -- Irish Blessing

I am crazy about how you put this page together--just love how it looks and what it says

Thank you for the feedback. I had fun putting this page together especially since the mug was a gift from one of my boys.
