I hope everyone is having a fabulous Saint Patrick’s Day! The sun is actually shining here and I am feeling great! Fabulous and healthy food, exercise, and temperament are all on tap (as is, perhaps, some Guinness for later on this evening) for the day!
I was thinking that it might be fun to do something different in celebration of the fine festivities that this holiday is known to inspire. I, myself, do have a partially Irish ancestry and that may account for the fact that I am forever finding four-leaf clovers. Truly, if I were to wager a guess, I might estimate that I have plucked up nearly a thousand of these tiny plants over the years, and have even found several five-leaf and a few six-leaf ones too.
At any rate, because it is Saint Patrick's Day, and due to the fact that I am fully aware of how fortunate I have been to lose nearly one hundred pounds in just seven months (hard work and determination being the main factor, of course), I would like to spread the luck of the Irish to one fabulous reader! So feel free to leave a remark on this post if you would like to be entered for a chance to win a four-leaf clover!
At 11:59pm on March 19th I will put the names of all the commenters into a hat and randomly draw one happy person to whom I will send this symbol of good luck. (Note that it I will be permanently affixing it to a piece of card stock to ensure the integrity of the item through the mail.) I hope you all enjoy this little bit of Saint Patrick's Day fun, and I leave you to your celebrations with the following:
“May love and laughter light your days
And warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours
Wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
With joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
Bring the best to you and yours!”
