wonders never cease

TUESDAY, MARCH 16th, 2010 words we love: for the love o' the irish.
"May you always be blessed with walls for the wind. A roof for the rain. A warm cup of tea by the fire. Laughter to cheer you. Those you love near you. And all that your heart might desire."
St. Patrick's Day rears its lovely, whisky-filled head tomorrow, and with it comes the eponymous blessings of the peat. So don your greens, raise a glass, and inspire us. Because everyone's a little bit Irish on March 17th, right?
This week's WORDS WE LOVE contest:
What is your favorite blessing or toast (Irish or no)? Our top pick will win a dozen Quotable Cards (and might get a chance to see the winning quote used by our friends who make Quotable Cards вЂ“ which would, of course, again rate some free cards!).
1. Tell us (by posting a comment here): WhatвЂ™s your favorite toast? And to whom is it credited?
2. Enter by Saturday, March 20th, at 8 pm EST.
3. Watch here for the winner, announced on Tuesday.
LAST WEEK'S WINNER:
Congratulations, Stephanie, for a submission by Emerson:
"Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience."
As always, thanks to all for your beautiful contributions! Enjoy your St. Patrick's Days and your toasting!
