My Luck with the Irish

Are Irish folk really lucky? Ireland had a potato famine. That is unbelievable to me. I feel Irish because I LOVE potatoes! In any form!

It turns out I have not found any Irish heritage even though my grandmother frequently told me when I was stubborn that it was my Irish blood shining through. With my auburn hair, fair skin, and I guess temperament, who was I to question her. She was a short feisty leprechaun for sure.

When doing some research for this month’s writing, I read whether gold was ever found at the end of a rainbow. Learn more by copying this link in a new browser tab,, from Almanac blogger James Garriss.

The excessive rain in my community has given me lots of rainbows even though this year has been extremely busy and challenging. These rainbows are a sign to slow down and count the many blessings in my life. The resale store too has been overflowing with gold coins as our sales goals have been met.

Most of all its the connections we make and lives we transform when we fill an apartment for a family that has been homeless from immigrating to America or rehabilitating from addition. Oh how serving others fills the heart and the pot! winking

Enjoy corned beef and cabbage this month, I certainly will. May your pot be filled with blessings throughout the year and you stop when you see a rainbow and appreciate them.
