Everybody’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. And, why is that, we wonder? Isn’t there something incredibly infectious about the Irish Spirit that speaks to us all? It may have been romanticized, but it comes from somewhere… it’s the music, the laughter, the amazing step dances, the sense of fun and camaraderie, the willingness to laugh at oneself in even embarrassing moments.
We have our own favorite irrepressible Irish Spirit … with laughing eyes and a smile that can brighten anyone’s day without a word being spoken.
So, we say …
In the lilt of Irish laughter, You can hear the angels sing.
And when Irish eyes are smiling, Sure, they’ll steal your heart away.
Though written by an American, the words of this ballad still speak to me of the charm we find so appealing in the Irish mystique. And so, from me to you, an Irish Blessing on this St. Patrick’s Day.
