Life’ Weather Report on St. Paddy’s Day

With a surname like Daley, you better have an affinity to St. Patrick’s Day!

Well, I’m in trouble.

No green beer

No beads

No parade

No Corned beef

and other St. Patrick’s Day traditions

Okay,here is a shamrock!


Let me share some life wisdom to bless you on this St Patty’s day. It won’t get you in the party spirit, but may it’s deep insight bless you with riches more precious than a pot of gold.

“Any day I’m vertical
 is a good day”
…that’s what I always say.

If you ask me,
“How are you?”

I’ll answer, “GREAT!”
because in saying so,
I make it so.

When Life gives me dark clouds and rain,
I appreciate the moisture
that brings a soft curl to my hair.

When Life gives me sunshine,
I gratefully turn my face up
to feel its warmth on my cheeks.

When Life brings fog,
I hug my sweater around me
and give thanks for the cool shroud of mystery
that makes the familiar seem different and intriguing.

When Life brings snow,
I dash outside to catch the first flakes on my tongue,
relishing the icy miracle that is a snowflake.

Life’s events and experiences
are like the weather –
they come and go,
no matter what my preference.

So, what the heck?!
I might as well decide to enjoy them.

For indeed,
there IS a time for every purpose
under Heaven.

And each season brings its own unique blessings.
