This morning I received another copy of the cute Irish Blessings book that I lost back in 2009 from the same friend who gave me the first one. He sent it via a courier.
And these are just some of them, wishes and prayers that bring a smile when I read them.
May the good saints protect you
And bless you today
And may trouble ignore you
Each step of the way.
May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door.
With the first light of sun –
When the long day is done –
In your smiles and your tears –
Through each day of your years –
Blessings to each one of you who read this.
