Color Fun

My antidote for grim news and ugly politics: A sewing machine and a glorious rainbow of flannels turned into receiving blankets for refugee babies. The idea of little ones wrapped in color and comfort helps me ignore
 the havoc on today's television.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A few quotes for the day of shamrocks,
 corned beef & cabbage,
and mulligatawny soup.
 
We have always found the Irish a bit odd.
 They refuse to be English.
~~Winston Churchill

The joyful heart sees and reads the world
with a sense of freedom and graciousness.
~~John O'Donohue
 
I try to be grateful for the abundance
of the blessings that I have,
 for the journey that I'm on
and to relish each day as a gift.
~~James McGreevey
