Old Irish Blessing..

Always remember to forget the things that made you sad.

But never forget to remember the things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget the friends who proved untrue.

But never forget to remember those who stuck by you.

Always remember to forget the Troubles that passed away.

But never forget to remember the Blessings that come each day.

To finish.. Happy birthdays to Michael Dulverton, Melanie Wilkinson and my PA Maya Quist..
