Saturday St. Patrick's Day Sky

A shot of the late winter sky, as evidenced by the snow on the roof tops. Partly cloudy mid-30's today, enough to melt the ice and snow that froze over night. The snow should be GREEN today for it is St. Patrick's Day!
So, in honor of the day, a some Gaelic phrases and Irish Blessings for you:

Kiss me, I'm Irish!= "Tabhair 'om póg, is Éireannach mé"

An Irish Prayer
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow

For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

A Wish for a Friend
Wishing you a rainbow

For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

and this one is my home-renovation mantra:
PHRASE: De reir a cheile a thogtar na caisleain!
PRONOUNCED: deh rare ah kay-lee a hug-tar nah cosh-lawn
MEANING: It takes time to build castles!
