…a little bit of sunshine

This glorious spring month celebrates Mother’s Day, St Patricks and Easter, providing a time for thanks, celebration, reflection, and an eternal hope for things to come. Sunshine can be found each day in the little things we do for each other – a kind word, smile or deed and also along the roadside with its many banks of daffodils as they gently sway in the breeze. For those who find a grey cloud overcasts their day may the words of this Irish Blessing bring a little bit of sunshine your way:

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
