An Irish Blessing: May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back…

An Irish blessing….

An Irish blessing….a long ago gift from my aunt, a blessing that hangs above the bed, nestled warmly into a scarf, resting upon a textured tapestry of comfort…extending the wishes and blessings to all…loving kindness wishes….combining multiple traditions, numerous cultures, universal wishes…

May we all feel…
happy and contented,
healthy and strong,
safe and protected
and living with ease…

~

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
