Today is St. Patrick's Day and I can't help but be a little melancholy about the time I have spent on that lovely green isle. Over the years I have made many trips and had some fantastic experiences. Good and bad they all touched my heart deeply.
It was wonderful to be an American traveling and living in Ireland. I have never received a more gracious and warm welcome anywhere else in the world. Even though I wasn't able to trace my Irish ancestors it always felt like home when I was there.
No matter where I may go I will always remember the beautiful country and the lovely people of Ireland.
