My mom was all Irish so March always causes me to reminisce about the stories she told me. One important tale she often shared, was the legend of the leprechauns seeking the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. How I used to delight at the thought of those lucky little guys jumping up and down for joy at finding the sparkling pot of gold! I live in the land of rainbows and I am reminded that there is always hope every time I see that beautiful band of color arching across the sky. Here is part of an Irish blessing for you in this month of St Patrick’s Day. “ May you live a long life with gladness and health…” May you never lose hope along your way.
