SS 1/60  F3.2  ISO 1250

“May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all your heart might desire.” – Irish Blessing

“These things I warmly wish for you Someone to love, some work to do, A bit o’ sun, a bit o’ cheer, And a guardian angel always near” – Irish Blessing

“May God grant you always…A sunbeam to warm you, a moon beam to charm you, a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you. Faithful friends near you. And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.” – Irish Blessing

Three similar Irish blessings all containing the wish for cheer.  Cheer? Because the Gerber daisy in the Victorian language of flowers represents cheer.

  1. Ah, cheer just when I need it!
    It’s snowy and cold today, and while it’s a beautiful vision through the window, your flowers are smiles for the soul inside the house!
    I love all three Irish blessings, but my favorite includes the guardian angel (the second one).
    Thank you!

    • So glad that my post could provide you with what you needed today Marylin! Sounds like we are suppose to have your weather tomorrow…more snow and cold temps. The kids will be in school half of the summer! I hope your week is full of joy and cheer! Smiles, Robyn

  2. What a beautiful photograph! Gerber Daisies are a favorite of mine, and I like how you used the angle to showcase them. The teeny percentage of my Irish heritage very much enjoyed the blessings. Keep spreading the cheer, Robyn!

  3. I like the story about your beginings back in 2011, i am doing the same now in 2014 as you did back then. It is nice to have such a supportive family and i wish you best of luck in your ventures.
