May you have plenty of happy tomorrows: GREEN DAY 2013

Celebrating luck gives us playful promises of happy tomorrows. 

I believe in luck.
Because I believe in being thankful.  
When I am feeling thankful
then I feel
Practicing gratitude makes me feel

If luck is "by chance" then it is QUITE possible that YOU may (by chance!) feel lucky if you practice a grateful heart!

How lucky each of us are depends on our own perspectives of how we view our own life and on how much gratitude we feel in our hearts.

Because of that,
I think TODAY is my...

Chris REALLY gave me a lucky day when he surprised me with a random, "just because" GREEN bag!!!

He chose well!  ;)  
Happy girl.

My new mint green bag.

A cup of hot milk with a stick of mint chocolate swirled in to start a happy O' Green day!

This is a delicious hot chocolate stick from Ticket Kitchen in San Francisco!

Sometimes the best ways to satiate a sweet tooth is with just simple and classic ingredients!

Minted green pencils to celebrate our green day...

Of course I wear green on the 17th of March...I have 3 little boys that would pinch me if I didn't. {wink}

And if I'm lucky,  my current read will get my life back to some good routine and organization...

Other green I've spotted in my life:
my favorite green matchsticks.

And my NEW green puffer coat I got this year!  This photo was taken on a recent trip to charming Ouray, Colorado!  I'm hoping it is the last time I wear it until next winter.

Cameron and I got a day out TOGETHER with a Friday school trip to Ouray.  We loved seeing the Ice Park!

BACK to green!
I have a bottle of green colored Sixets I used to make the boys an EASY St. Patrick's Day treat.

Just dots of green in an otherwise plain swirled ice cream cone!

An Irish blessing for YOU:

May the road rise up to meet you.

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

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
