An Irish Blessing
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
This old Irish Blessing is so fitting for runners - It is one that hung, framed,
on the wall of my childhood home, and my father loved to recite it in a beautiful Irish brogue. When I was 7 years old I kissed the Blarney Stone - the gift of gab was bestowed...And here I am.
Happy St. Patrick's Day
