Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!
Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Love your neighbor as much as yourself.
Shui Kuen from the elann.com chatsite sent this lovely dress for a St. Patty's Day celebration. She thought I just might be able to find an adorable baby to fill it as a tribute to our friends of Irish descent, old and new, here and gone. She told me that there is an old Irish saying that when one soul departs this world, another enters. To our Irish friends who've passed, we raise a toast in honor of your life. To the new ones entering this world, may Irish blessings rain upon you.
Here is wishing you all a day of laughter and friendship! Thank you again Shui Kuen....you have such wonderful ideas!
