Changes are in the winds, especially among the choir as it is that time for them to move on to seek their destiny and share their harmony with others… 🙂

 

Hello Diary,

Change is also in the climate, where today it feels more like being in the Amazon… it may not be fit for “man nor beast” but the hibiscus is loving it!!…  🙂

 

But life does go on, so taking the time to do some needed sorting in the home… while doing so came across some items that signified change… in 1998 at Christmas time Wal-Mart had computer packages on sale (Packard Bell tower, monitor and keyboard) so we purchased one, our first entry into cyber space, internet were dial-up over phone line…  I remember the salesman saying it had 10 MG of memory/storage and that would be all we needed… it looked like the PC in the picture…  🙂

 

I still use the speakers…the reason the I had thought of the old computer were when I were sorting, I came across the old printer… 🙂

Now, all it would do were print black and white or color, one could not copy or edit.. it were noisy and if one had to print multiple pages, it would shake and a dance around on the desk… I also found our first laptop.. it were a Dell and it had 124 MG of memory/storage and weighed 15 pounds.. one did not want to carry it around all day… 🙂

And finally, I came across our first mobile phone… it were a Motorola Meteor (sometimes referred to as a “bag phone”… 🙂

One still had to use a dial up to call, connection were sometimes iffy, could only talk and when on the road one kept it charged up by plugging into the cigarette lighter of the auto, technology were still in infancy of sorts, but having a mobile phone was starting to gain interest as peoples daily lives were changing… 🙂

With today's technology, there is hope here on the path that everyone will be able to communicate better world over, have a better understanding of each other and work together in harmony in order to have the planet Earth a better place…  🙂

HOPE IS

Hope is a feather floating in a bright blue sky
Hope is that sparkle that shines in your eyes.
Hope is a butterfly fluttering on the wind
Hope is good times spent with family and friends.

Hope is a newborn baby’s cry
Hope is a Mother’s lullaby.
Hope is the rainbow after a rain
Hope is the harvest of golden grain.

Hope is the light that keeps darkness at bay
Hope is the breeze on a hot summer day.
Hope is ever present and free of cost
Hope is the last thing ever lost.

Hope is staying positive when the going gets tough
Hope is seeking help when you feel you’ve had enough.
Hope is recovery from simmering sorrow
Hope is believing in a brighter tomorrow.
                    (Linda Hotger)

Well, I had better close for now, have more sorting to do.. not to mention dreams to follow… but will return again one day, Fate, and technology, be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..  🙂

 

Until we meet again, whatever road, path or trail of life you choose to take.. 🙂

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your heart and spirit know love and happiness
On your journey through life.

Here in the not so secret garden, the only weapon used is love… 🙂

I live in a not so secret garden
Along the path least traveled,
Quite unlike the other world
A world that has become unraveled.

A garden of peace and harmony
Being different does not matter here,
All creatures, big and small, living together
Unlike the other world,  they do not live in fear.

Together we live the hand that Fate has dealt us
Not sure, or dwell, on our final destiny,
But live to enjoy the moment, the hour, the day
That is what life is about, don’t you see.

So into the not so secret garden I will venture
Along the path least traveled, 
To find love, understanding, to follow one’s dreams
Unlike the other  world unraveled.
                       (Larry “Dutch” Woller  )

Hello Diary,

Thought I would stop in briefly and share a few thoughts, have been away from the world of cyberspace for a few days, had some technical issues to deal with, but managed to overcome.. 🙂

While I were away from cyberspace, I saw that the USA were leaving Afghanistan and life there were back in turmoil , little has changed.. 🙂

Another example of elements of the world’s societies unable to reach a middle ground, compromise through understanding and chose, instead, conflict to settle issues.. and in the end, all that were accomplished were sowing the seeds of hate, anger, suffering and despair… 🙂

 

Now, I will be the first to admit that I am not “the sharpest tack in the box”, but I have a suggestion… 🙂

I set here looking at the news
The powers wanted peace they say,
And while they spoke, bombs were dropped
20 children died that day!

What’s wrong with this idea?
Why not give PEACE a try,
Let’s give it a go, everyone
Maybe no more children will die 

Smiles on their faces, while shaking hands
Arms deals for defense would come into play,
A bomb went off in a crowded market
10 children died that day.

What’s wrong with this idea?
Why not give a world with LOVE a try,
Let’s give it a go, everyone
Maybe no more children will die 

 A war to end all wars, they said
Yet to war they always return,
Death, destruction, suffering and pain
Won’t they every learn?

What’s wrong with this idea?
Let’s give UNDERSTANDING a try,
Let’s give it a go, everyone
Maybe no more children will die. 

 Anger versus anger, hate versus hate
Seeds sown by war at home and away,
Starvation , sickness, a mother in tears
More and more children die every day.

What’s wrong with this idea?
Why not give PEACE, LOVE and UNDERSTANDING a try,
Let’s give it a go, everyone
Maybe no more children will die.
( Larry “Dutch” Woller) 

Well, I had better close for now.. prepare for the next weather event, a hot and humid wave coming this weekend… may have to make a few adjustments  but life, and the heart, will go on… I shall return again one day, Fate ( and technology) be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…. 🙂

 

Until we meet again…

May your spirit only know peace
May your heart only know love
May all your dreams come true
May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
And life is all that you wish for it to be….
                       (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

Hello Diary,

Stopping the world briefly to share a few thoughts.. unlike those unfortunate folks on the West Coast, rain (and storms) has been the story here on the prairies.. so it has been a bit hectic venturing outdoors, but not to be beaten.. neither virus, weather or ideologies will prevent us here on the path to follow our dream, to enjoy the day and adventures… 🙂

 

 

For walking, we have our trusty nothing fancy treadmill.. 🙂

And we utilize technology (turning a old pc into a stereo, unable to get online with it)… 🙂

Turn on the music (or I can use the new PC and visit friends), get on the ole treadmill and start walking.. Wonder how long for me to walk around the world, 80 days perhaps?… 🙂 When I am not walking, during unsettled weather like today, helping the weather service help others using technology and not leaving the backyard… so I venture out into the backyard and look on the horizon and I see a cloud formation, with a cloud rising out of the base like a chimney (center of picture)… 🙂

I look in another direction and see a cloud base with one cloud rising in the center (looking like a chimney, and another cloud on either side… 🙂

Those clouds are known as a “towering cumulus” and they indicate a unstable airmass, add to that sunshine, hot temperatures and a bit of wind  and one has  a invitation to thunderstorms.. so if one would happen to be out on a picnic or taking a walk and one would happen to see clouds similar, perhaps one might wish to stay aware of possible changes in the weather, and it could be rapid…  🙂

Again I use technology to gather knowledge “Any piece of knowledge I acquire today has a value at this moment exactly proportioned to my skill to deal with it. Tomorrow, when I know more, I will recall that piece of knowledge and use it better. “ (Mark van Doren )… and send what I have observed to the National Weather Service so they and use that information for any possible watches and warnings…

 

What happens here on the path when one is outdoors and one suddenly hears the rumble of thunder, one would ask… the pace picks up and I believe Yanni says it best… 🙂

Well, I had better close for now… finish the day and prepare for possible storms later… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again…

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your spirit only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

Hello Diary,

 

 

It has been a hectic week, dealing with appointments, life’s challenges, weather, etc… may see some more weather later today, so taking this moment to share a few thoughts… difficult to remain positive but positive we are here on the path as we woke up to cloudy and somewhat foggy morning… 🙂

And after a hectic week, decided to make today a relaxing day… believe the furry little knucklehead, the squirrel, is setting the pace for everyone here on the path least traveled.. 🙂

So, with some relaxing music … 🙂 And a spot of wine… 🙂
And perhaps later get out the Kindle.. 🙂

Will enjoy the day and the new adventures, because it will not come again… 🙂

And with the storms, virus, etc. are we happy, one would ask? Yes, indeed because we woke up on the green side of the grass with a heart full of memories and knowing that as long as I have a open mind and follow my heart,  there are more adventures waiting and memories to be made… 🙂

 

Happiness is to have loved
Than have not loved at all,
To share love with another
To always heed one's heart call.

Happiness is to follow one's dream
To be who one wishes to be,
To live one's own life one's own way
Not live the life of another, you see.

Happiness is always waking up on
The green side of the grass,
Even though the day may be stormy
Knowing it too shall pass.

Happiness is knowing another
A understanding, caring friend,
Someone to share life's memories with
A friendship to never end.

Happiness is to pen thoughts
Let the fingers do the walking,
Thoughtful words that come  from within
Because the heart does the talking.

Happiness is knowing when to end a poem
For it is down life’s highway I need to venture,
To gather more memories and thoughts to share
As I live, and enjoy,  tomorrow's new adventure.
                   (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. (Author Unknown)… 🙂

Sooooooooooooo, with thoughts shared (and a sip of wine), will close for now… will stop the world and get off for a bit… meditate a little, contemplate the tomorrows and what destiny may have instore for me and what adventures I am yet to be a part of… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..  🙂

 

 

Until we meet again.. 🙂

Yes, everyone were born equal but it seems there are elements of today’s USA society (and world’s societies) that have either not read those words, do not understand or the words “went in one ear and out the other”….  Not so here on the path as my friends and I have a the same dream as those who penned the Declaration of Independence… 🙂

 

 

We have a dream… 🙂

I peer out my window
Parts of the world, cold  and bleak,
A world of conflict, anger and hate
Mortals are suffering as I speak.

But we have a dream
My friends  and I,
That one day there will be peace
No more mortals will die.

And there will be hope
Of a world filled with love one day,
A wish that could come true
For hope is the last to die…they say.

Not a world of race, color or gender
Nor closed minded ridicule or prejudice...you see,
But a world that respects another’s dream
Of what or who they wish to be.

So I peer out the window
Not with sadness or a tear, 
But a heart filled with hope and a dream
Of a world  of love and peace, not hate and fear.
                         (Larry “Dutch” Woller) 

Hello Diary,

It is a peaceful Sunday morning here on the path and while I ventured out to gather weather data I were serenaded by my backyard friends…. 🙂

 

It is a holiday Sunday here on the prairies but a quiet day planned here on the path, while sipping on a cup of tea… 🙂

And while gazing on the horizon (looking south from my backyard)…. 🙂

Will contemplate the tomorrows… 🙂

A quiet Sunday morning to wake up to
Sitting, gazing out, with a spot of tea,
Contemplating today and my tomorrows
Wondering, what will the future might  be.

A quiet Sunday morning, life is calling
Beckoning on the path, its mysteries many unfold,
Each to explore and treasure
One day to become a memory to behold.

A quiet Sunday morning, birds chirping 
Another day to learn and explore about me.
It is my life.. only I can live it
So will do it my way.. don’t you see.

A quiet Sunday morning, of me being different
Reminding me of words from a song,
Where do I fit in, one would ask
One wonders, where do I belong.

A quiet Sunday morning, here on the path
At the end... on the horizon… lies my rainbow,
It is there my answers lie... the truth is known
Until then, only Fate and destiny will know.

Yes, a  quiet Sunday morning, spirit, body and mind at the ready
To seek that rainbow... perhaps around the next bend,
Once found, I’ll have my answers, destiny known
And that will be the beginning, not the end.
                      ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Better close for now.. Tea is ready, Kindle is ready, time to stop the world and get of for a bit, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again..

May your spirit only know peace
May your heart only know love
May all your dreams come true
May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
And life is all that you wish for it to be….

“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird, that cannot fly.” (Langston Hughes )… 🙂

Dreams..
There's a place where I go that no one else knows,
Where mysteries abound and excitement grows.
A place out of reach of any man's hands,
Safely secluded in a far away land

Beyond the grasp of those who may plunder
The wealth of its power and its life changing wonder.
I go alone to my secret place, never leaving a trace
For someone to follow and discover my space

Where I keep my secrets, my fears, and my regrets
Away from the world and all of its threats.
It's mine and mine alone!
The only place I can call my own.

I treasure the moments spent in this realm
Where anything is possible and I'm at the helm.
This place I describe is all that it seems ...
It's a magical place I call my dreams.
                                              (John Raines)

Hello Diary, The past few days have been waking up to stormy skies… “red skies in the morning, sailors warning”… 🙂

Have been dealing with rainy and stormy weather and it is beginning to  feel like living in the land of gators and big snakes… but, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. (Author Unknown)…  🙂

But in spite of life’s “storms”, here on the path we continue to have our dream, a dream of a wonderful world of peace, love and harmony… 🙂

 

A world where… 🙂

Children could follow their own dream, you see
Not to be denied by another’s ideology,
To follow the destiny of their own choice
Not to be hindered by another’s voice.

Not a world of race, color or gender
Nor closed minded ridicule or prejudice...you see,
But a world that respects another’s dream
And of what or who they wish to be.

One is free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
To lives one’s life without suffering or fear,
Not to be accepted by belief, gender or race, you see
But by the love, understanding and knowledge of a spirit born free.

Not a world of sorrow or fear
But a world of hope and dreams, not sadness
A world  of eternal love and peace
A world of eternal happiness.

A world of  love that is without end
Through an eternity it will endure,
A love that knows no boundaries 
A love beautiful, caring and pure.
                   (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
Yes, we have a dream, right Abba?… 🙂

Well, “Every morning your have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams, or wake up and chase them.” (Author Unknown) so I had better close for now and get to chasing… gotta find that elusive rainbow… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…  🙂

 

 

Hope all YOUR dreams come true and until we meet again.. 🙂

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your spirit only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.

Hello Diary,

Yes, even though life has put many challenges before us, the world is struggling to deal with issues and hate, anger and prejudice has raise it’s ugly head at times, here on the path there is indeed hope, especially in the not so secret garden, where flowers bloom spreading hope and love…. 🙂

 

Like the raspberries loved by the backyard residents.. 🙂
The Hummingbird vine.. 🙂
The clematis…. 🙂
The daylily…. 🙂
And the hosta.. 🙂
Yes, the residents of the garden, plant and animal, are many, different and live together in harmony… 🙂

A Not So Secret Garden

I live in a not so secret garden
Along the path least traveled,
Quite unlike the other world
A world that has become unraveled.

A garden of peace and harmony
Being different does not matter here,
All creatures, big and small, living together
Unlike the other world,  they do not live in fear.

Together we live the hand that Fate has dealt us
Not sure, or dwell, on our final destiny,
But live to enjoy the moment, the hour, the day
That is what life is about, don’t you see.

So into the not so secret garden I will venture
Along the path least traveled, 
To find love, understanding, to follow one’s dreams
Unlike the other  world unraveled.
                       (Larry “Dutch” Woller  )

I feel like waltzing through the flowers, care to join me?… 🙂

Well, had best stop the music and get on with the day… adventures lie in wait for me, looking forward to learning more about me and the universe…  but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…  🙂

 

 

Until we meet again..

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
May green be the grass you walk on
May blue be the skies above you
May pure be the joys that surround you
May true be the hearts that love you.
    (Irish Saying)

Have been busy this week trying to get outdoor projects taken care of between weather events… one being mowing… 🙂

All the while words of Rose Milligan floated in my mind, sighhhhhhh… 🙂

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better 
to paint a picture, or write a letter, 
bake a cake, or plant a seed. 
Ponder the difference between want and need. 

Dust if you must, but there is not much time, 
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb!
Music to hear, and books to read, 
friends to cherish and life to lead. 

Dust if you must, but the world's out there 
with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair, 
a flutter of snow, a shower of rain, 
this day will not come round again. 

Dust if you must, but bear in mind, 
old age will come and it's not kind. 
And when you go, and go you must, 
you, yourself, will make more dust! 

                         (Rose Milligan)

Hello Diary,

Yes, been a busy week dealing with life’s challenges, and working in the backyard with my backyard friends keeping a close eye on me making sure I were doing it right… but no matter how busy I were, every morning I were greeted by my backyard friends…  🙂

 

 

Another fine morning on the prairie… 🙂 And I would take the time to gaze upon the prairie skies and contemplate how wealthy I am… 🙂

I’m far richer than the rich
Wealthier than the wealthy by far,
I have gold in the sun
I have silver in the star.

I have dreams that I follow
That are more precious than gold,
As I venture through life
Eagerly watching, the dreams unfold.

I have diamonds, too many to count
With each new fallen snow,
As I see each one sparkle
While basking in the suns glow.

The mornings bring nature’s painting
Priceless, a portrait of the sky,
Impossible to duplicate
Even though many did try.

 Each bloom of the red rose
A ruby, one of a kind,
With the bloom of the white rose
A pearl comes to mind.

Money have I little
But wealth I have got,
But  I don’t fit in with
The wealthy and rich lot.

And I’m not going to change
A wealthy dreamer I’ll stay,
Until  the rivers, they all run dry
Until  the four winds, they all blow away.
      (Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Journey of Self Discovery...

What I am
Who I want to be
Am I just a stranger in this dinosaur world,
or my is existence limited to rest ,eat and pee.

Every day is a new day ,
I try to discover myself,
The identity crisis lulls over me,
In calm, yet monstrous glee,
Failing to find what exactly constitutes my being.

One day I want to be a doctor,
Other day an engineer,
Or even a scientist,
The society decides my ambition,
What career to pursue is guided by secure future norms,
They say I have a lunatics mind,
Persuade my mother to put some sense into me.

Enough is said,
I my setting on a journey of my own,
The mistakes I make shall be mine,
The regrets shall be my defined,
Its fall or rise,
Time will play a key role,

As Frost said,
I have an option of two paths ahead of me,
One pre decided by my ancestors,
less risky and challenging,
Other of my own,
I decide to take the less traveled one,
To mark on journey of my own.
                          (Illahi Bedi)
Hello Diary, I gazed up to the skies and saw contrails (jet engine exhaust) made by man’s flying machine.. Many crossing each others path as those on board seeks their destiny, following their dreams (or someone else’s dreams)… 🙂

I believe that each and every one follows their dreams, their path whatever it may be… I too, am following my dreams and know happiness because, unlike many, I chose the path least traveled, which made me different… 🙂

And why do I wish to be different, you may ask,
The freedom to choose, to explore, to learn a lot,
Dictated to by a prophet chained to a myth…. NOT
Maybe so everyone can shout and point at me,
And say, “Hey, he’s different”, don’t you see.

Able to follow my own path...to be me,
Able to  live ….. my own  reality.
And the path least traveled... allowing me,
To gaze upon life’s treasures, large and small
That many others do not, would not see.

My mind is clear and open, gathering knowledge every day
My spirit is young, adventuresome and floating free,
Not confined by those social chains, no box, no mold for me
I am what I am, I am me, what I wish to be,
Perhaps that makes me different, don’t you see.

So my heart’s compass is pointed to the horizon
Sails set full, safe harbor fading in the distance, a faint glow to eye it seems
And with a pocket full of memories, on the horizon are my dreams
So down the path least traveled I will venture, with spirit free
Why the path least traveled?..well, I’m different, don’t you see.
                                  ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )
And because of the path least traveled, as I pass through life, much like the Monarch butterfly… 🙂

And I do so with open mind and heart and each day is an adventure, because I am free… 🙂

The path is calling as I speak, so I shall close for now… and it is down the path I venture, with a pocket full of dreams and a heart filled with memories… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise.. 🙂

 

Until we meet again, a toast..

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your spirit only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

“Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of reality is not your reality.” (Shannon L. Alder) on the path least traveled…

“It is not easy to find happiness within ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.” (Agnes Repplier )… 🙂

Time flies, and memories fade.
People change and new friendships are made.
Only the true remain forever at our side.
Eventually the disappointment and pain will subside.

It is all about the journey and what has yet to come.
Life is what you make of it; you are what you've become.
Life is too short to hold onto regrets.
Forgiveness is key even though you may never forget.

Cherish the good and remove the bad.
Some people don't realize till it's gone what they've had.
Moving on is a way of life.
There will always be obstacles, pain, and strife.

You must believe that you are strong enough to fight.
You have to believe in yourself to do what is right.
Always do for YOU no matter what you do,
Because in the end the only one who has your back is you.

Never be afraid to take a stand,
And always be willing to lend a helping hand.
A little bit goes a long way.
All it takes is a smile to brighten someone's day.

Your chance to live is now, so what are you waiting for?
The world is yours for the taking and so much more.
Endless possibilities are forever at your disposal.
The chance to live another day is life's golden proposal.

Never let anyone tear you down,
And never let anyone steal your shine and make you frown.
So will you sit in the shadows and let darkness win again?
Or will you rise up and make the light your friend?
                                                       (Hollianne Boucher)

“My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man’s doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze.. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny”.( Elaine Maxwell)… 🙂

Hello Diary,

June is Pride month… every month should be pride month, every day should be pride day,  because everyone should be proud of  who they are!…  be free to follow their dreams their way, being themselves,  as they venture down life’s highway…. As Steve Jobs said;

“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary” (Steve Jobs)…  🙂

 

“Every morning your have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams, or wake up and chase them.” (Author Unknown)… 🙂

I awoke one morning, alone, in history’s past..
Left with a heart full of memories, a decision to make,
Confronted with two paths to my destiny..
Heart and mind to decide which one to take.

Take the one most traveled, the logical safe choice…
The one chosen by the multitudes..the human race,
Like sheep, following a path determined by another…
No self identity, all bearing the same face.

A most traveled path whose direction is chosen by a few
The rest to follow, ever so blind,
Their destiny not chosen by their own hand
Their fate determined, by a closed mind.

The other path less traveled, mysterious and unknown
Where one can be different, like me I confess,
Without fear of ridicule, bigotry  and hate
A path filled with love... and happiness.

A path less traveled where one can follow ones dreams
An open mind to see what others do not,
To live a life guided by one’s heart
While the other path one cannot.

Decision made, with eyes on the horizon
It’s down the path least traveled I do venture,
Excitement fills the air, a smile on the face
Looking forward to a great adventure.

My fate will be unknown, what lies ahead unsure
I do not know…. what my destiny will be,
But one thing will be certain, written in stone
I shall venture down that path …..being “ME“.
          ( Larry “Dutch” Woller)

And although life has many challenges, I do know happiness because I venture down the path being me… 🙂

And doing it my way… 🙂

I shall close for now, excitement is in the air as I prepare to venture down the path because “I  am what and who I am, venturing down the path of life, following my dreams, chasing rainbows and leaving safe harbor with sails set full, to boldly go where I have not been before”… (Larry “Dutch” Woller), but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

Hope whatever path you choose is filled with peace, love and happiness and until we meet again… 🙂

May flowers always line your path 
and sunshine light your way,
May songbirds serenade your
every step along the way,
May a rainbow run beside you
in a sky that’s always blue,
And may happiness fill your heart
each day your whole life through.
May the sun shine all day long
Everything go right, nothing go wrong
May those you love bring love back to you
And may all the wishes you wish come true
                   (Irish Saying)
