Happy St-Patrick's Day

Top of the mornin' to ya!    Glittering Leprechaun Hat

Yes, it's St. Patty’s Day! Yeehaw for the Irish and all things green.  I'm dancing a little jig myself.... not that different from my morning exercise

Irish Leprechaun Dance Turn
My new name for the day is O'Syl and my partners in crime have been renamed  O'Nicky, O'Bella and O'Missy.  Whether they like it or not is of no consequence; i am the o'alpha of this gang.  Trying to, anyhow! 

Since i have decided to live my life on purpose, i tend to participate more in the everyday things.   I want to treasure every hour I am alive and if some days i need an excuse to rejoice, i make one up!  Sounds like a Sylvie thing?  Fill your boots! 
St. Patty's March 17
Yes, it'sSaturday and yes, it's green out there today.  You'd say that's a given but you would be wrong!  A few times this past week we've woken up to white stuff, and it is forecasted again for the week to come.  Oh well; what can i do?   Pray?  OK, I can do that!  :)   Here's a very appropriate Irish prayer i found while surfing this morning...  

May the blessing of God's soft rain be on you,
Falling gently on your head, refreshing your soul
With the sweetness of little flowers newly blooming.
May the strength of the winds of Heaven bless you,
Carrying the rain to wash your spirit clean
Sparkling after in the sunlight.
May the blessing of God's earth be on you,
And as you walk the roads,
May you always have a kind word
for those you meet.

Bravo, Anonymous;  incredibly well said and timely.

What does one do to celebrate this day?  Here is a list of 10 things to do
to make it special:'s-Day

List includes things like:  Learning about the history of this holiday,
Going green... and that's not just what we wear;  accessorizing for you fashionistas in the Peanut Gallery.  Of course, wouldn't be right without listening to Irish music:
 eating the traditional Irish food :        
and checking out the local Pub (mayhaps have a green beer?).  It also states that you can have you own Irish party at home and reminds you to be respectful of everyone's beliefs...  Something for everyone!  It's fascinating!! 

Off to find myself a parade to attend,  and signing off with this beautiful Irish saying, which I found on the web this morning:
May the sun always shine on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain,
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you!

Better be a Little "S" than a Little Less!   I'm Not Irish But I'm Cute
