Friday's Blessing

I had so many things I wanted to write about today, but the day's getting away and I'm working on my novel. So I thought I'd just talk a wee bit about Irish blessings.

Many cultures have blessings, and surely the Bible is filled with them, but who else but the Irish are known for them? Do you have a favorite? What is it about them that draws us to them.

Like the warmth of the sun
And the light of the day,
May the luck of the Irish
shine bright on your way.

May your pockets be heavy-
Your heart be light
And may good luck pursue you
Each morning and night.

Someone made a beautiful video with a beautiful Irish blessing, and I wanted to share that with you.
