The Best St. Patrick's Day Ever
St. Patrick's Day as an elementary student meant getting pinched no matter how much green I wore. As a teenager it meant the marching band would go to a college town in Missouri and march on green streets in front of a bunch of people who were drunk and rather scary. As a Mom it means I try to find something even remotely green in my closet and I console any children who got pinched even though they were wearing green. Yesterday was different. I still tried to find something green in my closet (I had worn my favorite green shirts the week before and they were dirty) and my children had stories of people who got teased for wearing too much green but ... I also gained two nephews. They are doing well and so are their moms. That is a great blessing and easily makes this year's St. Patrick's Day the best ever.
