as we enter the weekend .........

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that it takes so little effort to be friendly

that I can go into this St Patrick's Day without the need or desire to drink or get drunk.

that I have less fear of life than I ever have

for all of my friends and acquaintances who have passed away before me.  They each meant something different to me, in their own way.  I bring this up because one died Wednesday and another may die today or tomorrow.  I accept their passing as God-given and I know it's not for me to take it personally but instead to accept and have compassion.

May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
a moonbeam to charm you,
a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to you.
Faithful friends near you.
And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.
- Irish Blessing
