Brighid’s Kiss

Lyrics to Brighid’s Kiss

Gabhaim molta Bríde
Ionmhain í le hÉirinn
Ionmhain le gach tír í

Molaimis go léir í

Lóchrann geal na Laighneach
A’ soilsiú feadh na tíre
Cean ar óghaibh Éireann
Ceann na mban ar míne

Tig an geimhreadh dian dubh
A’ gearradh lena ghéire
Ach ar Lá ‘le Bríde
Gar dúinn earrach Éireann

Brighid of the sunrise
Rising in the morning
Rising with the Springtime
Greening all the land

See you in the soft cloud
See you in the raindrop
See you in the winds of change
Blowing through the land

You the red eared white cow
Nourishing the people
Nourish now the hunger
Souls longing in our land

Bird that is unfolding
Now the time’s upon us
Only have we eyes to see
Your Epiphany

You the red eared white cow
Nourishing the people
Nourish now the hunger
Souls longing in our land

Bird that is unfolding
Now the time’s upon us
Only have we eyes to see
Your Epiphany

Gabhaim molta Bride
Ionmhain i le hEirinn
Ionmhain le gach tir i
Molaimis go leir i

My Tarot Reading

Your Card
Five of Water

You are hovering on the edge of grief, despondency, or discouragement. Depression has been called “anger turned inward,” but also “intuition unheeded.” What message do you need to receive from your intuition? There’s a boat in the distance that will take you through the mists to the farther shore. What is on the other side?

Shadow side: You may fall deeper into depression and despondency. Being sad may have become a habit that is hard to break. There will always be those who are willing to help you, but you must make the choice to heal yourself.

Yule cookie – Mom’s Bon Bons

Mom’s Bon Bons

1 cup sugar
2 cups butter
1 egg
4 cups sifted flour
½ teaspoon of lemon extract
Or a few drops of oil of lemon
1 small jar of S&W chopped fruit
Bag of chopped pecans or walnuts

Mix creaming butter and sugar, adding rest of ingredients
Make into 2 rolls then roll in chopped pecans or walnuts
Put in refrigerator
Slice thin and bake at 400 degrees

The chopped fruit was a jar of mixed maraschino cherries and other coloured fruit.
When in the cookie makes it look like a stained glass window.

The mom in Mom’s is my grandmother and she did this pre any magazine article for stained glass cookies as this was her way of modifying the spritz dough sans the almonds.
