Nóirín’s first blog!

February 02nd 2009

Míle buíochas to dear Robbi who is yet again my whizz guardian angel to allow this old wrinkly granny to kick the blog heels! And at time that has always been so special: Feb 1, yesterday, feast of goddess, saint Biddy herself and Imbolc, first day of spring; today lovely feast of Candlesmass and we’re just in holding our little blessed candles that will shine through many a dark moment through the coming year! And TOMORROW, the feast of ould Blaise, patron saint of the throat. So my first message is to be sure, to be sure to have your throat blessed by a friend tomorrow and you too must bless that friend’s throat with a little blessing too. A blessing of love, peace and harmony in all that we say and all that we hear over the coming year! Moley is here in the background and now we’re off to Fiona and Elaine’s new little house armed with a John O’Donohue blessing for a new home and we’ll give a blast of ‘Bless this House, O Lord, we pray’ there too as we cross the threshold! Talk soon again.

God bless now,
Nóirín Ní Riain
