Cold, rainy, sleet, thunder, and even tiny hail fell today, St. Patrick’s Day.
In my husband’s oatmeal bowl this morning I left him a little something green for a treat.
His grandparents came from County Galway, Ireland, as I wrote about last St. Patrick’s Day.
He is weary, his brother is very ill in a hospital in Arizona. There is much on his mind.
He smiled as he found his surprise, and enjoyed his shamrock cookie with his coffee. The smile was enough right now.
On my weekly visit to our local thrift store, I found a little green myself, a sweet bowl for 25 cents.
Loved the shape and the scalloped edges. It was marked on the bottom, E. O. Brody Company, Cleveland, Ohio. Checked listings online and found my little bowl selling for as much as $20. Just love it, and I will use it every year around St. Patrick’s Day.
Most of us collect or accumulate special treasures during our lives, I have added the little green bowl to mine!
Happy findings today, whether it is enjoying a cookie, or just sharing a smile with someone you love!
