Good luck or fortune?

CloverBeing of some Irish decent, the pipes are usually calling from glen to glen this time of year.  Walking the building, you see the signs of beginning spring, especially those 3-and-4-leaf clovers.

This little batch of shamrocks (three leaves on each stem and the national emblem of Ireland) was found right off our playground.  It reminded me of a poem my Granny B would share:  “May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow; and may trouble avoid you wherever you go!”  The batch of shamrocks also brought about an interesting discussion today between some wee friends:

  • Child #1:  It’s our lucky day!
  • Child #2:  How do you know?
  • Child #1:  Because it’s ‘fortune’ we found these shamrocks.
  • Child #2:  You mean lucky, huh?
  • Child #1:  No, it’s ‘fortune’ because they’re worth so much!
  • Child #2:  How will these build fortune?
  • Child #1:  Because now we find the leprechaun and the pot of gold!   (…and then they started the search…)  🙂

Whether good luck or great fortune, may the wonder of finding a small patch of dewey shamrocks always bring great promise…and as my Granny B would sing:

“May there always be work for your hands to do; may your purse always hold a coin or two.  May the sun always shine on your windowpane; may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.  May the hand of a friend always be near you; may your heart fill with great JOY to always cheer you!”  Yes, perhaps we all become a little Irish when we find good luck and great fortune in our path!  🙂
