I love Ireland. Beautiful country, interesting history, and remarkable people. I thought it would be fun to list a few blessings and thoughts from the Irish. Enjoy!
May the strength of three be in your journey.
A toast to your coffin. May it be made of a hundred-year-old oak, and may we plant the tree together, tomorrow.
May the most you wish for be the least you get.
May you have walls for the wind, and a roof for the rain, and drinks beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, and those you love near you, and all that your heart may desire.
May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.
May your hand always be stretched out in friendship and not in want.
And one more…
For the test of the heart is trouble, and it always comes with years. And the smile that is worth the praises of earth, is the smile that shines through the tears.
