While most people celebrate the day by drinking green beer and worrying about getting pinched for not wearing said color, St. Patrick’s Day holds a different meaning for me. It’s the day I became a mother.
Happy Birthday, Brandon!
This picture is from his senior year of high school on a trip to Cancun (he’s on the left). Being his mother has always been an adventure! He’s spirited, intelligent and interesting to talk to. I worked it out with his doctor years ago that all his good qualities come from me and the others…well, those are from Dad. LOL.
In a couple of months, he’ll graduate with a PhD in Physics. There’s a job lined up, too. I couldn’t be prouder of him.
So, while everyone else toasts with green ale today we’ll have a quieter celebration. One that marks our firstborn’s entry into the world.
Wishing you all of the many wonderful things that an Irish blessing will bring. Happiness, joy, love, and laughter, may your day be content and may you smile happily ever after! –Anonymous
Now it’s your turn. What does St. Patrick’s Day mean to you?
