Exactly 31 years ago today I quite spontaneously – if not inexplicably – mailed off a St. Patrick’s Day card to a man I had met only briefly once before. Unknowingly, that piece of shamrock-studded stationary would set in motion a chain of correspondence spanning over a year and lead, soon after, to the marriage of Marian… and Adam, my husband to this very day!
For this reason, I can’t help having warm, special feelings for St. Patrick – and St. Patrick’s Day.
What do you associate St. Patrick’s Day with? Green beer?
Actually, today got me thinking about all things green.
About recommitting to making “greener” (i.e. environmentally sound) choices when it comes to purchases. About choosing food and beverage products with minimal, recyclable packaging and contents that are life-sustaining.
About green food and their health-supporting roles.
There are so many reasons… GO GREEN!
Tonight Adam and I will deviate for a moment from the current Lenten Fast and raise a glass of something sparkling to our favorite saint — and his matchmaking powers ;-). This is a toast I found in my inbox today:
“May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks
May your heart be as light as a song
May each day bring you bright, happy hours
That stay with you all the year long.” —An Irish Toast
