Top O'the Morning..........



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're going too far.



When I came upon this passage in the wee hours of this St. Pat's Day morn, it brought a tear to these Irish eyes. Ah, yes, the wisdom of the Irish....from the little snippets shared by my rosey cheeked grandma in her lovely Irish lilt to the sage advice came from the hard learned lessons of my father to the verses that speak to me when I need spoken to. I shall think of them all today. And, in between all the greening of the day, I shall give them great ponder and pray for their guidance. All in the hopes of knowing if there really is a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow.....
Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate St. Patty's Day.
That and my green shoes. But it doesn't feel much like a green hair kinda day....

God Bless you all on this St. Patrick's Day.....from glen to glen, and down the mountain side.

One of the things I've learned from witnessing civilization after civilization
after civilization, Judi, is that one should never underestimate the
profound resiliency of the human spirit, nor how swiftly things can change for
the better - often overnight.

My beloved friend Judi,
There's a tear in your eye,
And I'm wondering why,
For it never should be there at all.
With such pow'r in your smile,
Sure a stone you'd beguile,
So there's never a teardrop should fall.
When your sweet lilting laughter's
Like some fairy song,
And your eyes twinkle bright as can be;
You should laugh all the while
And all other times smile,
And now, smile a smile for me.

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

For your smile is a part
Of the love in your heart,
And it makes even sunshine more bright.
Like the linnet's sweet song,
Crooning all the day long,
Comes your laughter and light.
For the springtime of life
Is the sweetest of all
There is ne'er a real care or regret;
And while springtime is ours
Throughout all of youth's hours,
Let us smile each chance we get.

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to a friend who makes the world a more beautiful and smiling place to be. I think of you every day but especially on this day. May your Irish eyes always smile!

May your blessings outnumber
The Shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Well Judy, thats a beautiful way to look at St Patricks day. Here in Australia it is purely a reason for a piss up (as is everything) and to like the colour green for a day!
