Oh, indeed!Perfect day for this message - in so many ways!
I've always believed that of faith, hope and love, the greatest is hope.
I'd never heard of that proverb, but it fits us today beautifully. Happy St. Patty's Day to you.
Like it to be sure...
Send this to the people of Japan...
thank you, suz.xo
An uplifting thought! Not sure if you'd see it, so I'm copying my reply to your comment here about haru kaze: "Suz, haru kaze (or harukaze or haru o kaze which is a phonetic translation) refers to "spring wind". After WWII the limited Japanese navy in the mid-1950's came out with an anti-submarine destroyer that was referred to as a "Harukaze Destroyer.:" In some poetry, it's referred to as a gentle breeze in spring. Throughout their history, plum blossoms, in Japanese and Chinese literature represent renewal, hope and life. Hence, my poetic license for both haru kaze and plum blossoms as a kind of prayer for renewal of life....Hope you're doing well, these days too! Rick
