Happpy St. Patricks Day!

I love Ireland and all things Irish, St Patrick's Day has always been one of my favorite holidays!
I can not celebrate St. Patrick's Day without thinking of W.B. Yeats..
According to the Wikipedia:
William Butler Yeats; 13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet, dramatist, and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature. A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, in his later years Yeats served as an Irish Senator for two terms. He was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival, and along with Lady Gregory and Edward Martyn founded the Abbey Theatre, serving as its chief during its early years. In 1923, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for what the Nobel Committee described as "inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation." He was the first Irishman so honored.

One of my favorite writings by W.B. Yeats is titled 'Into the Twilight'.

Out-worn heart, in a time out-worn,

Come clear of the nets of wrong and right;

Laugh heart again in the gray twilight,

Sigh, heart, again in the dew of the morn.

Timely, I once had copied this poem in calligraphy and framed it for my wall.
How awesome are these St. Patty graphics? In case you didn't notice, in my sidebar under 'Resources' you'll find 'Free Images'.
I often turn to this source for vintage holiday images that I can glitter and glam.

Today is my last day of work, (thank goodness), before Friday's meeting.I am taking tomorrow off for car repairs early morning and a doctors appointment in the afternoon. Then Friday morning 10 a.m. will be the defining meeting to start the end of this hellish nightmare that has been my existence for far too long...

I am in a good place with this and am ready. It's what all this going through the motions has been leading up to.

I am taking both my friend Susanne's advice and Patti's love with me. The high profile lawyer finally called me back. I am not making a decision about that until after Friday's meeting. The ball is actually in their court, their response will determine my next choice.

But for now, it's madhatter time...oh and before I forget to tell you, I printed off and made those St. Patty's Day paper toys from 'The Toy Maker' for my staff's desk and left them for my staff to find this morning before I left work. They were so easy and fun...I hope you had a chance to view and possibly make some...

Hi again!!! First off...Happy St. Patrick's Day! All your decorations and pics and all are way too cute. Secondly...BIG hugs for Fri. It will be as it will be... A very good friend is going through something at work that is hellish. Her latest "meeting" was today and it went well. You know good things happen in 3's so I am sure things will work out. It may not seem like that at first...but have faith that they will work the way they are supposed to. I will be thinking of you. Enjoy your day tomorrow even though it will be filled with "must-do's" it will give you a little room to breathe! Take care!!!

Hey Sugar. I'm glad you have some time away before the big meeting. You have been so so strong through out this whole thing. I know when you walk in the Lord will be standing beside you with his hand of strength and justice on your back. May his angels love surround you as you stand strong. I will have you in my prayers everyday. I love you Sweetie. Hugs and Kisses....Tracy :)
