Now in her own new home, with yard, garden, snowfall and all to care for, she's crossing the threshold to a new decade, full of possibility. My Sweet Darling, I offer you this prayer from the deep past of our Celtic heritage:
Be the great God between thy two shoulders
To protect thee in thy going and in thy coming.*
Happy Birthday! Happy Life!
