What St. Patrick's Day is to Me


Today isn't about kisses, drinking, or even just a saint for me. It's an important day for me to reflect on all the Irish have done in this wonderful new country that they made their new home, and to remember their struggle back on their own shores. When I lift a glass today it will be to both my ancestors that came here to America so long ago, and to the dream of a free Ireland.

  3. Yes, we of Irish descent (and Lakota, too for me) have to remember the bards of Ireland and the heroes of whom they sang. Hibbs had a "unique" meeting with a leprechaun over at Meilori's for the day's celebration!

  5. Beautiful Heather! My St. Patrick's Day was spent driving 8 hours alone. Much to think about. Much to be grateful for. And this beautiful land we live, is one of those things. Thank you for a great post!! I hope your day was special!

    1. A day of reflection is always good. But driving, girl, you're a pilot, why would you drive eight hours anywhere?! LOL!
