Top ‘O The Mornin’ To Ya!

Today is St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s such a fun little “holiday” with everyone wearing green, leprechauns all around, and a festive atmosphere.

And of course, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!  🙂

And as I was thinking about it, I remembered a Catholic nun I used to work with.  She sat at the front desk as a volunteer and always greeted everyone with a smile.

On St. Patrick’s Day, she would greet you with, “Top ‘o the mornin’ to ya!”  You’d find yourself reciprocating, and then she’d say, “And the remainder of the day to yerself!”  I loved it.  What a joyful, friendly greeting, putting you at easy and in a good mood all at the same time.

Problems didn’t seem quite so big, life didn’t seem quite so overwhelming, and things seemed to slow down just a bit for a moment as you contemplated that quick bit of banter.  Yes, life was good.
