An Irish Blessing

03 17 13_0661115The spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day is alive and well here at Brundage Mountain.

After a long dry spell, Winter returned in the form of two inches of fresh snow.

Watching flakes fall all morning was a welcome distraction, but what energized our day even more was the festive spirit of our guests.

Most of us felt excited to see wintery weather return and to share the blessings of the day.

May you be rich in blessings, poor in misfortune,
Slow to make enemies, quick to make friends.
But rich or poor, slow or quick,
May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
