Though my family has been in the U.S.A. since the 1600’s, our roots are Irish and Scottish and we love to celebrate that at every opportunity. In fact, my mom found our family tartan pattern and had ties made for all my male family members. They wear them all the time and it’s always such a fun reminder of our history.
There are also several Irish sayings that we love to quote to each other, depending on the situation. I even like to use them in easy toddler activities for my son!
You’ve probably heard a few of these Irish sayings:
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
May God grant you many years to live,
For sure He must be knowing
The earth has angels all too few
And heaven is overflowing.
May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.
But of all the Irish Blessings we use around here, the one I remember the most from my childhood is this first one. My mom had it hanging in our home the whole time I was growing up!
We moved over 20 times during those early years, but that saying hung carefully on the wall was something that always told us we were home!
Irish Blessing Printable
I wanted to recreate that feeling of “home” for my family, so I made this 8×10 Irish Blessing printable for myself and I wanted to share it with you too!
I would suggest printing it on cardstock, and there are guidelines for cutting it once it’s printed.
Also, the gold is just the perfect color to actually look gilded once it’s framed behind glass!
