Lots O’ Luck!
St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic. – Adrienne Cook
As my family is from the Middle East/Mediterranean parts of the globe – I am not so Irish. I just love St. Patty’s because there is a feeling of joy and goodwill at the heart of the celebration. The whisky and green beer libations probably don’t hurt either. It’s Saint Patrick’s Day.
Look, any excuse to wish anyone a Happy Anything is a beautiful thing as far as I am concerned.
At least the intention is there to lift someone up and put a smile on their face. Most of us are in the habit of sending kind thoughts to those we love. Often we will send prayers of support to those we don’t know but are in need. I have a prayer circle attached to the weekly letter Friday’s Child. I also have an altar I use to center my intentions and do what ever I can for my family, clients, and friends by way of Higher Thought.
By a window in my great room resides a table full of photos in tiny frames I have collected over the years. My friend asked me the other day if I didn’t get tired of dusting and cleaning the dozens of mementos all of the time. Truthfully, I am at a point in my life where if I never saw another feather duster or bottle of Windex? I would die a very happy, dusty kinda gal. Just this one little chore of tending to these pictures is still a joy to me.
As I pick up each of these treasures I think about the person in the picture. I try to get a feeling for how they are that day. Are they happy? Are they healthy? Are they prospering? How are their loved ones doing? I end this ritual with a prayer for their Highest Good and the hope that all is well for them.
If you start your day wishing others well you can’t go wrong. You can only feel better when you offer kind thoughts into the daily mix. Kind thoughts for others has the benefit of pulling up the “off notes” of the day to bring us into the harmony of life.
Now as I am as full of the blarney as the next person here is my Not So Irish Blessing for you.
“May angels strive to protect you. May your heart of love shine bright. May sweet comfort be yours always. Good health, good luck, goodnight.”
Have a sweet one!
