Happy St Patrick's Day 2010

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Happy St Patricks Day to all we know, family and friends, near and far. 
I finally decided what to fill my new jar with: Shamrock cookies! 

By the time each of the three kids went off to school this morning with a box of them to share and Byron and myself had brought trays into work there were not many left. 

I can't imagine there will be any left by the time we go to bed tonight...!

  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day, Gina! Lovely cookies...and what a lovely blessing! Thanks for sharing.

    I read online, the background of the pinching if you don't wear green on this day. It is an American tradition which dates back to the 1700's. It was said that if you wore green, then the leprechauns couldn't see you...and if leprechauns can see you, they pinch you. green, anyone feels free to pinch you. Isn't that interesting?

    Have a great day!

  2. Happy St Patricks day to you my Irish friend...
