Namaste dear Well Wishers,
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you!
What a wonderful surprise to come home to 1,300 visitors today on the Well Wishers Group blog.
During the month of January, I started the New Year by creating an Irish Blessing in greeting card format, one for each day, and it seems they’ve caught on, I’m so pleased or well chuffed as it were!
With this nice response, I resolve to create a new page for the Irish blessings created so far to make them easier to access on the Well Wishers Group blog.
Ireland is close to my heart, and in my blood. When I was living in Paris in 1992, as a Canadian, I had a year-long work visa that could be extended for 6 months only. I wanted to stay, what to do!
One night, my Grandpa Jack appeared to me in a dream and told me to check about getting an Irish passport. He was correct, I qualified to have an Irish passport by way of Citizenship by Descent. My Grandpa Jack was born in what would become Northern Ireland though as his birth was prior to 1922 it was before the division occurred and his birth is considered part of the Irish Republic. You too might qualify, it’s worth a try!
I am ever grateful to have obtained an Irish passport and granting membership in the European Union was a dream come true. It took a year long stay and turned it into eight, that’s fate!
Here’s wishing you and your loved ones warm Irish blessings.
