Motivation Monday - Here's to the Irish!

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

Happy St. Patrick's Day
Dye the rivers bright green
Let the green beer flow
make sure you have your emerald hat, and/or necklaces and earrings
how about a lime mustache and wig or shamrock- spreckled tights and a tutu
 Green is the color of the day if you are Irish
All the Irish Dancers and the parades - fun!!
Now is the time for great foods to name just a few
Corned Beef and Cabbage, Grilled Lamb, Barley and Lamb Stew,  Shepards Pie,  
Green Velvet Layer Cake,  Irish Stew, Leak Potato Soup, Guinness and Onion Soup, Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, Emerald Eggs, Scones, Irish Soda Bread, Shamrock Cupcakes,  and Irish Coffee [gosh I am so hungry now]
If you are not Irish [& I am not], well go with the flow and enjoy yourself.

JOKE: A Spanish singer chatting on television used the word ‘manana’. When asked what that meant, he said it means “maybe the job will be done to-morrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that, next week, next month or next year. Who cares?” An Irishman in the conversation, Shay Brennan, was then asked if there’s an Irish equivalent. “No. In Ireland we don’t have a word to describe that level of urgency”

Sanctuary of St Patrick, Lough Derg | Co. Donegal

St Patrick’s Purgatory | Lough Derg is a unique island of deep prayer and a living part of Irish Christian Heritage. St Patrick himself was called to the island. Pilgrims have been travelling to the sacred site on Station Island, County Donegal for centuries. The small island is set in calm lake waters where there are no distractions or interruptions making it a conducive place to go into deep prayer and to get closer to the authentic self.
