When Irish eyes are smiling!

Posted on

There is no doubt that I am of Irish decent.  It’s quite obvious by my red hair, my fair toned & freckled skin and my blue/green eyes!  Not to mention the slightly demented sense of humor and distinct love from beer!!!  So, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day I would like to share my favorite Irish blessings (in no particular order):

“May you be an hour in heaven before the Devil knows you’re dead.”

“May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been, the foresight to know where you’re going, and the insight to know when you’ve gone too far.”

“Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold beer and another one!”

“May God grant you always…A sunbeam to warm you, a moonbeam to charm you, a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you. Faithful friends near you. And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.”

“May those who love us, love us; and those who don’t love us, may God turn their hearts; and if He doesn’t turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we’ll know them by their limping.”

“May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live.”

“May God give you…For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”

Ta Mile Failte!

About TheSheriW

Since a very young age, I have always been drawn to writing. Be it poems, short stories, plots or characterizations I found a great release, and at the same time, great energy in putting thoughts down on paper. Throughout my life I've experienced a roller-coaster of emotions, many which I've kept hidden beneath the surface. Writing allows me to identify, accept, release or embrace those feelings. Life, death, pain, elation, fulfillment, fear. I've traveled down each of these roads over and over again. If my lyrics can convey to even one other person that they aren't traveling alone, I've done my work. Words are the medium that paint the pictures I see in my imagination.
