In honor of St. Patrick's Day, here is an Irish proverb that is relevant today.
"In our togetherness, castles are built."
BTW ~ Are there snakes in Ireland?
I just had my first taste of Irish soda bread and it was sweet. Is it always so?
I named my first child Erin.
My friend kissed the Blarney Stone and said Ireland was gorgeous. I hope to see it one day.
In 1847, during the Great Irish Potato Famine, the Choctaw Nation collected and sent $170. to the Irish government in aid - in remembrance of their survival of the horrific Trail Of Tears where many died of starvation. The Choctaw Nation and Ireland still celebrate this occasion to this day. There is a monument in Ireland somewhere in honor of the Choctaw's kindness. Maybe the luck of the Irish rubbed off, because the Choctaw Nation (and most other tribes) went from extreme poverty (as recently as the 1980's) to great wealth today and still, they help their surrounding communities and country with building infrastructure and other businesses.
My husband and children are proud members of the Choctaw Nation.
It is greening up nicely here and can't wait to start sowing and digging in the garden, even looking for a few four leaf clovers.
Found a picture of the Choctaw Memorial in Ireland to honor the kindness of the Choctaw Nation during the famine. It is fitting and beautiful I think.
