Traditional Irish Blessing
May the blessing of light be on you,
Light without and light within.
May the blessed sunshine shine on you
And warm your heart till it glows like a great peat fire,
So that the stranger may come and be warmed at it,
And also a friend.
And may the light shine out of the two eyes of you,
Like a candle set in the two windows of a house,
Bidding the wanderer come in out of the storm.
And may the blessings of rain be on you,
The soft, sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirits so that all the little flowers
May spring up and shed their sweetness on the air.
And may the blessings of the Great Rains be on you,
May they beat upon your spirit
And wash it fair and clean,
And leave there many a shining pool
Where the blue of heaven shines,
And sometimes a star.
And may the blessing of the Earth be on you,
The great round earth.
May you ever have a kindly greeting for those you pass
As you're going along the roads.
May the earth be soft under you when you rest upon it,
Tired at the end of a day,
And may it rest easy over you when at the last,
You lay out under it;
May it rest so lightly over you
That your soul may be off from under it quickly
And up and off, and on its way to the sky.
And now may the Spirit of Life bless you all and bless you kindly.
I wish you all the joy, nourishment and peace the holiday season promises.

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to travel the world and to make a difference in other people's lives. I truly didn't believe I would become a teacher though; however, I am so glad that I am 5D's teacher! I am originally from Washington state but have enjoyed living in both West Africa and Lebanon. I am very blessed to have lived such an incredible life thus far.
