In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’ve gathered a quaint collection of quotes from eleven revered Irish writers (though there are a considerable number of fascinating souls from “The Emerald Isle,” to be sure).
This is a short love poem in honor of someone who has made a profound impact on my life… Without your love, I would be blind to the way life glimmers, I would miss the joy of it, and I thank you for what you’ve given me.
Love is the way I let go of who I thought I was this whole time, and accept that I’m more than the small thoughts that race through my mind and the chaotic patterns that bring me down. Love is more than a feeling—it’s the way to peace inside and outside.
This poem is a tribute to my dad, who passed earlier this year, and to every other Daddy’s Little Girl who misses theirs.
Each episode of sorrow offers a pathway back to love. Every time I find my world darkened by fear, my heart gripped by grief, there I find solace in the storm because I’m pointed again in the direction of love.
Time is such a wonderful gift. These Trevor Hall lyrics are a soothing reminder that there is a spiritual journey we’re all on, no matter who we are or how we walk this road.
Let’s love not hate. And let’s remember that kindness and patience, forgiveness and friendship are signs of the love that would save us from the separation we feel.
