My Pot of Gold

Happy St. Patrick's Day! This day never comes without me thinking of my youngest son Jake. He was always the funniest little boy and one year around St. Patties day he decided that Leprechauns were real. (Of course, that's not to say that they aren't...)He spent several days before the 17th drafting a letter to Mr. Leprechaun and insisted that we leave him treats in the hope that the little guy might be so pleased that he would leave him his pot of gold. For several years after that, there was a letter and a treat left out on St. Patrick's day, though never a treat or letter worthy of a pot of gold.

That funny little boy is now a handsome, witty man of almost 27. I like to think that he never stopped writing to "Mr. Leprechaun" and hoping that one day he would be kind enough to leave Jake his pot of gold. I got my pot of gold several years ago when I was blessed with a little boy with such a great imagination. Jonovan Jake, happy St. Patrick's Day. I love you very much.

***MOTHERS DISCLAIMER: To my two other children Timothee and JoLee; this post in NO WAY indicates that Jake is my favorite. I love you all EQUALLY. And eventually there will be a post here about you as well. Just remember that it could be a post about anything you did as a child so you might want to be careful about how you treat your mommie. :o)

Keeping with the green theme of the day, I've decided to share a few pics of my favorite greens around our home....


Wishing you all the luck of the Irish today and and over abundance of blessings!
