Ok, I’ll be honest. This has never been a huge holiday for me. I’m not a big fan of corn beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, green beer or shamrock shakes. The history of St. Patrick driving out snakes pretty much creeps me out as does the thought of little men in green suits with red hair and beards invading my home! LOL
BUT it does signal the arrival of Spring in a few calendar days (now we just have to let Mother Nature know that too)! It also reminds me of the need to do a bit more “Spring cleaning”. I spent a day a few weeks ago purging my closet of clothes that have not been worn in a long time. Three trash bags later, I still had more to go through. I will continue my quest this evening to purge even more clothes and give them to a worthy cause: Liberty House in Manchester. It is my hope that a female veteran will benefit from the gently worn clothing and be able to embark on a new lease on life!
Tiocfaidh na héadaí ó mo chroí! (The clothing will come from my heart!)
Guím saol sona fada duit! (I wish you a long happy life!)
