~~Celtic Dreaming~~



Picture from here



May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

~Irish Blessing~

Oh sweet everlasting love...

And they lived   Happily Ever After.... not just true in the good 'ol fairy tale books, but living very much to those words.
Yesterday I saw a sweet elderly couple walking in front of me, with matching khaki trousers, and dark short sleeved tops, and beige coloured shoes ...( I wasn't really noticing that much!)... I watched them walk side by side, step to step and, in sync...and finally, like a natural act, their hands just met, and they walked hand in hand. That caught my breath! It was special. It was a true love that existed there, in two total strangers to me, their body language spoke it all. There was an understanding, a warmth, a selflessness, and a relationship that seemed to be based on unconditional love.
It reminded me of a 92 year old man that I met, who is married for 70 years!!! His secret to a long lasting marriage....listening to one another, and treating each other with respect, and most of all loving each other unconditionally... this to him was actually no secret, it was simply a given.
There's always hope and trust in love, you just have to believe in it!

True friends stand the test of time

Friendship is one of the most valuable experiences you can have in your life..that's something you get to know as you live your life from day to day. They're the friends who stand by you through thick and thin, good and bad times, and who will be brutally honest with you. It's awesome and a blessing to have people in your life whom you can sit and have a whinge with, be totally comforable with, and most of all be accepted for being yourself. In this day and age when life can be so hectic in so many ways, it's great to know that you've got a friend that you can turn to, a friend you can count on.

 Friendship works both ways. True friends are priceless and a rarity, treasure them!

 Great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget ( G Randolf)
