Funny Irish Blessing
“May those who love us, love us,
And those who don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he doesn’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we will know them by their limping.”
This has always been one of my favorite Irish blessings, and it seems to be a favorite among Etsy shoppers as well. I have sold two already, and just added a third to my shop. I like using the Celtic knot of the two people intertwined on this one: it’s hard to tell if they’re hugging or fighting, which goes well with the spirit of the blessing.
