HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
I remember the aroma of corned beef and cabbage wafting throughout the house each year on St. Paddy's Day as I was growing up. My mother always made this from scratch, honoring her Irish roots. Her great grandmother came to the United States through Ellis Island when she was a young girl, working as a nanny for my great, great grandfather and his wife. His wife passed away, sadly, and he later married the children's nanny, my great, great grandmother; thus my maternal great grandmother was born. May you have a wonderful, joyful and safe day today, and . . .
"May you always be blessed with walls for the wind, a roof for the rain, a warm cup of tea by the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all that your heart might desire." (Irish Blessing)
