I awoke this morning to an elegantly expressive sky over County Clare, Ireland, and found this very fitting Irish blessing to go with it…
Morning Irish Blessing
May your joys be as bright as the morning,
And your sorrows merely be shadows
That fade in the sunlight of love.
May you have…
Enough happiness to keep you sweet,
Enough trials to keep you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
Enough hope to keep you happy,
Enough failure to keep you humble,
Enough success to keep you eager,
Enough friends to give you comfort,
Enough faith and courage in yourself to banish sadness,
Enough wealth to meet your needs,
And one thing more…
Enough determination to make each day
A more wonderful day than the one before.
