One Lovely Blog and an Irish Blessing

Cheryl Palmer of Heritage Happens recently honored A Sense of Family with the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you, Cheryl! It’s a thrill to be recognized by a blogger whose writing I enjoy so much. Cheryl has a great voice and brings a lot of insight into her posts. If you’re not already a regular reader of Heritage Happens, I highly encourage you to check it out.

In a future post, I’ll do my part to pass the award on to 15 more bloggers, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I want to send out this Irish blessing in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t have any Irish ancestors that I know of, but my husband does, stretching back many generations on his maternal side. They came from County Down and County Antrim, from Bangor, Belfast, Larne, and Islandmagee. I admit I’ve become a bit entranced by Islandmagee, a rugged peninsula on the northeast coast of Ireland where my husband’s great-grandmother, Annie Carmichael Flack, was born. If I win’s “True Irish Roots Sweepstakes,” you can bet I’m going to go there!

And so, a little Irish wish to all who read this:

                             May your pockets be heavy
                        And your heart be light,
                        May good luck pursue you
                        Each morning and night.
