An Irish Friendship Wish

May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your window pane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

A wish for a friend

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers - 
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours - 
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through. 

A Friend's Smile

It's easy to be pleasant
When life flows by like a song.
But the man worthwhile is the one who can smile 
When everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble,
And it always comes with years. 
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth
Is the smile that shines through the tears.


Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends,
for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things, 
but above all, the power of going out of one's self, and
appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.

There are good ships, and there are wood ships, the ships that sail the sea. 
But the best ships are friendships, and may they always be. 


May the lilt of Irish laughter lighten every load,
May the mist of Irish magic shorten every road,
May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune e're bestowed, 
And may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.
