Luck 'O the Irish

I just finished putting together our visiting teaching gifts for the month of March. It is always a tricky one for me...St. Patrick's Day isn't very glamorous. And green? Not at all flattering. But I saw these cute shamrock socks at Target (2 pairs for $5) and thought they'd be a fun way for our ladies to wear green on St. Patrick's Day.

The Old Irish Blessing reads:

"May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you."

Top 'o the morning, Lassies!

I LOVE St. Patty's day! I just won't eat the green food that I prepare for me wee lads! Thanks for the fun idea.

I think of you often, Amber. I haven't been doing much blogging at all lately, but had to pop over and see how you are doing. Glad you are hanging in there and keeping your chin up and making the best of things - just your style.

Sending love to you and your family -

Just as clever and thoughtful as I've come to expect for you, sweet Amber! You are such an inspiration! Love the prayer and the cute socks!

Jenni said...
