These things I warmly wish for you,
Some to love,
Some work to do,
A bit o' sun,
A bit o' cheer,
And a guardian angel always near.

2004

I finally broke down today and bought new shoes
thinking maybe the old ones had walked all the paths they were meant to walk.

2003

I forgot my green today, and for punishment no luck seemed to be with me, thankfully my spirit was good, and the day went well even if it was longer than normal.

2002

A day spent fighting the machine
Watching the Race
Reflecting on the Memories of Yesterday

2001

The first day I can wear blue jeans in my new position at work and it's Saint Patties day and I wear green. wonder if I could find an Irish to rob some luck from

2000

A day of sleep
dreams of green
try not to weep
tears fall, unseen

1999

I recall last year on this day
A feeling of joy, something not felt
A giggly sense of being
mischievousness and fun

Then he awoke and shattered it
In an instance my laughter turned to silent tears
To complain would do no good

I wonder why St. Patty's day stuck in my head
not unlike many days before or after
Maybe because it was the first in a long time that I allowed myself to be happy.

1998

St. Patrick's day
aye, I tis wearing green this day.

I have heard so many comments back about my thoughts and my words, reflecting how my words have been perceived by so many. It has been interesting to learn, that on any one given day, my writings have and can be perceived so differently by the different viewers. But yet still have an impact on the reader.

If you have read through some of my earlier entries you may realize that this is a point I often ponder. How can one word be seen so differently when viewed with different eyes? It also brings to point that we all are so different from one another, each of us unique in our own ways and this fact also makes us wonderful in our own right.

I will always ponder the mysteries of life, I'm certain I will always have bad days and good ones. I'm sure that tomorrow will bring me new knowledge and possibly a new friend. And I'm positive my spelling is never going to improve. *laughing*

Happy St. Patrick's day one and all.
