I have never seen time pass so quickly until I started teaching the Calendar Classes at TM. It seems as though as soon as my classes end each month, its time to prepare for the next and before you know it too is over. Maybe it is that I am getting older and my children keep me very busy that I just don't see the time pass so quickly. I look forward to the time that I slow down just a bit, to stop and smell the roses. I don't think this will happen anytime soon. But for now I'll just enjoy the busy moments of my life and the pattering little footsteps that I hear running around my house.
Onto next months class. I have always loved St. Patrick's Day. My grandfathers parents were from Ireland, he was a Hennessy and so over the years I would hear my family talk about our ancestors and it always intrigued me. I also went to a Catholic school as a young child and our school was famous for putting on plays. Our priest at our school was Irish, so we always put of a skit for him on this day and we would wear green and sing songs...it was such a nice memory. We don't seem to do these things in school anymore, but each year I look for shirts and different things to take my boys pictures in. So get ready to make a fun layout in March, we will be making spinners, stacked flowers, sewing and lots of handcutting...please don't let this scare you away, the handcutting isn't that bad...I promise!
Here are a few Irish quotes that I wanted to share with you.
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always 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 hollow of His hand.
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
