    Loved it Susan and what beautiful words. Thank you for sharing it.

    • Thanks so much Merle. You are so welcome. 🙂

  • Mary Slagel

    Beautiful pictures! One of my New Years Resolutions was to take more pictures this year. So far I haven’t done too well with it but spring is a great time to start.

    • Hi Mary, Thank you. The fun part about taking digital pictures is you can delete them if you don’t like them… LOL. So get your camera out and have some fun. 🙂

  • Kelly Wade

    Very nice. At home I have an Irish poem on a wall decor hanging in my kitchen and it always brightens up my day. Hope you have a fun St. Patrick’s Day this weekend!

    • Hi Kelly, I love the warmth of the Irish poems and prose. They say so much in such few words. 🙂

  • Once again we get to enjoy your artwork. I couldn’t help but think, what would be an Italian wish?! Hmmm. Maybe a blog post for me.

    • Aw… thanks Patricia, That is a great thought and a wonderful idea for a post. 🙂

  • Lovely poem Susan and I like the line under the poem – May our days be filled with wonder.

    • Thanks Susan, It’s funny, that phrase was ever present in my mind on my walk that day. It pleases me that you noticed it. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    Nothing personal but I tend to enjoy Irish drinking songs a bit more than Irish poetry.

    • Hi Jon, No offense taken. I like them to. This just fit my mood. 😀

  • Shamrocks and rainbows make for lovely imagery, even if they are not quite as pretty as seems to me to be the real thing, like cherry blossoms and tulips.

    • Hi Leora, I love the real thing too, That’s why I’m always taking pictures to capture what I see. 🙂

  • Doreen Pendgracs

    That’s one of the things I love about you, Susan. You’re always looking for a reason to celebrate. I love that.

    • Thanks Doreen, Life is something to celebrate… Right? 🙂

  • Pat Ruppel

    Thank you Susan and a happy Irish Wish to you too! I’m also including “An Irish Blessing” from Ellie on YouTube believed to be sung by Mary Black.


    • How cool Pat. Happy St Patrick’s Day and may the luck of the Irish be with you. 🙂

  • A.K. Andrew

    A lovely reminder of the positive side of life Susan. Thank you & hope you have a good St Patrick’s Day on Sunday.

    • Thank you A.K., I believe it’s important to always bring that to the forefront when there is so much negative going around. A Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you too. 🙂

  • DC@ punctuatelife.com

    I have this wish posted on my vision board 🙂 Happy St. Patricks Day!

    • Hi DC, I love this poem too. Happy St Patrick’s day to you too. 🙂

  • Julie

    Hppy St, Paddy’s day to you. I love the pics and the poem. Pinned it. 🙂

  • Lovely post and images, as usual. I’m lucky (or unlucky, depending on your POV) to live in New York which has the largest St. Patrick’s Day parade outside of Ireland. It’s quite a raucous day and the Irish bars are filled at night. Good to stay away from the pubs!

    • Thanks Jeannette, I get that about NYC at that time. It would be fun one time and then to stay away or watch it all from a distance… LOL.

  • Great photos and great message. So sorry I have been absent my friend. Moving house has taken all my attention. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Cheryl, No worries, I so get that about moving. 🙂

  • Bethany Lee

    awww . . . thanks for this Irish wish, Susan! It’s been a while since I’ve been to comment on your blog and I’ve been wonderfully blessed today by your images and your heartfelt wishes for us! 🙂

    • Hey there my friend. It pleases me you enjoyed them. Doing a Happy Dance now. 🙂

  • Carol Covin

    Love this Irish poem. I found out as an adult that I had family in Ireland for 100 years before they immigrated to the U.S. in the potato famine in the 1850s.

    • Hi Carol, How cool is that. So you can actually really celebrate your heritage on that official/unofficial holiday. 🙂

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    Great poem and pics!! You are so talented

    • Thanks Krystle. You are one of my best cheerleaders. 🙂

      • HomeJobsbyMOM
