St. Patrick’s Day was always very special in our family….

Part of my dad’s heritage was Irish…

…..my sister has been busy tracing our family’s roots.

And come to find out, that we are DAUGHTER’S OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION!!…

Turns out that our great-great-and more great grandfather fought in the Revolutionary War…..

…..and after the war, he acquired land from guess who?!!….Patrick Henry!!

Good thing it wasn’t Benedict Arnold!

All those years of writing those essays sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution…

…..wishing that we were actually a part of this wonderful group..

……….and my sister actually winning this essay contest…

Who knew??!!!

Yes, our family is full of wonderful writers.

My aunts on my dad’s side were all redheads…redheads with beautiful steel blue eyes…and freckles.

…..one of my sisters got some of that red hair and freckles (the one who won the essay).

So when I found this St. Patrick’s Day fairy…I had to smile and remember my aunts.

She was born on St. Patrick’s Day….I know there was some “divine intervention” going on!
