Happy St. Patricks’s Day from my favorite Leprechauns!










St. Paula, St. Pat, and St. Anne…thank you for the best celebration the Meltons have had all year!





An Irish Blessing for My Monkees (From the Wall of my grandmother, Alice Flaherty)

May those who love us, love us.
And for 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’ll know them by their limping.



Bubba and Tisha – Your clan will be listening to the Irish Rover and Mountains of Mourn while we eat our green eggs this morning. We love you.


Erin Go Bragh!


PS. Momastery Facebook Status Update for the day….

Momastery
Momastery Glennon is wishing she was at the Dubliner on her 20th Guinness. Instead, she is at home, because she is a poor, recovering drunk, dripping with children. And this, as a matter of fact, makes her more of an Irishwoman than anybody at the Dubliner. Erin Go Bragh.

As you know, I don’t say the “f” word. Ever. Never, ever, ever.

As you also know, Adrianne is one of the most important people on Earth to me. We have a unique relationship based almost completely upon my constant efforts to make her be good and her constant efforts to make me be bad. Deep down, it’s incredibly important to each of us that the other not change a bit, but we have a whole lot of fun “trying.”

After Adrianne’s “Dust on the Bible” post, there were a few Monkees who expressed interest in some sort of Monkee Bible Club. I was toying with the idea and decided to ask Adrianne what she thought. Here is our correspondence regarding the issue. I think it epitomizes our friendship.

*********

G: Hey, A -What do you think about a Momastery Bible club? Does that sound exciting to you at all? I might be able to help make it fun, sister. I think I could. It would also be another way we would make sure to communicate each day while I’m gone.

A: I love you T-H-I-S much, but there is no way in hell I’m participating in a Bible Club. No way. No how.

G: Girl. what if it just meant reading ONE line of scripture and talking about it for FIVE minutes? God you’re such a Dirty Heathen.

A: Ok, here is the deal…

If you agree to FART in my presence and they say, out-loud, “I just farted,” I will participate in your Bible study.

Jesus wants you bust ass, Glennon. My soul is at stake here


G: “I would do anything for love. But I won’t do that.” – Meatloaf.

Also, obviously, I’m posting this. Try to stop me.

Love you.

A: Love you, too.

It’s Monkday, the day we soak in beauty and hush.


Please, please find twenty quiet minutes today to read this. It’s one of the most gorgeous and honest stories about the fierce tenderness of motherhood I’ve ever read.

Thanks Rebecca, for sharing Kelle with me.

Have a beautiful day.

Love, G
