Did you attend a St. Patrick’s Day Parade? Are you feeling lucky this year? Well, we WiseMommies are feeling exceptionally ecstatic, green, and lucky this year.

This comes just in time for a holiday that I personally love to celebrate the most: St. Patrick’s Day! Though you may not have known this about me since I married a German and our world is greatly influenced and submerged in the German culture, but I do love everything Irish.
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow and our own pot of gold, here are my favorite Irish posts:
1) My Biggest Life Changing Event
2) How Ireland Changed My Life
3) Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day
4) Meaning of St. Patrick’s Day: Irish Memories!
5) St. Patrick’s Day Authentic Craft to teach kids
6) Kissing the Blarney Stone & St. Patrick’s Day Crafts
7) All of this lead me to a TOTAL unknown of marrying a German (3 Marrying a German Series):
And we leave you with some Irish Blessings and Quotes:
The Four Greatest Irish Blessings
- Honest work to occupy you.
- A hearty appetite to sustain you.
- A good woman to love you.
- And a wink from the God above.
May the dreams you hold dearest, be those which come true. The kindness you spread, keep returning to you.
Irish Blessings (This is the blessing that I always heard in Ireland)
May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rain fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
May you have: A world of wishes at your command. God and his angels close to hand. Friends and family their love to impart, and Irish blessings deep in your heart!
May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night,and the road downhill all the way to your door.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, and may good luck pursue you each morning and night.
May your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.
