Irish Blessing

So this week leads us to St. Patrick's Day and I felt that I needed to pay tribute to my Irish background.  Here's an Irish Maggie with a beautiful blessing for you all.

May the blessing of the rain be on you—

the soft sweet rain.

May it fall upon your spirit

so that all the little flowers may spring up,

and shed their sweetness on the air.

May the blessing of the great rains be on you,

may they beat upon your spirit

and wash it fair and clean,

and leave there many a shining pool

where the blue of heaven shines,

and sometimes a star.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

So very sweet! I've been enjoying your work! You might want to join The Three Muses...every week they host a new digital challenge. Fun and you see and learn a lot of new techniques. :)
