A Friendship Blessing

May you be blessed with good friends.
May you learn to be a good friend to yourself.
May you be able to journey to that place in your 

soul where there is great love,
warmth, feeling, and forgiveness.
May this change you.
May it transfigure that which is negative,
distant, or cold in you.
May you be brought in to the real passion,
kinship, and affinity of belonging.
May you treasure your friends.
May you be good to them and may you be there
for them;
May they bring you all the blessings, challenges,
and light that you need for your journey.
May you never be isolated.
May you always be in the gentle nest of
belonging with your anam cara.

~John O’Donohue~

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I am sharing this beautiful blessing written by the great Irish poet, John O’Donohue, (1 January 1956 – 4 January 2008) who left the physical world way too soon, but continues to open people’s hearts and stir their souls with his beautiful words.  Anam Cara is Gaelic for ‘soul friend’.  I hope that each and every one of you who is reading this has at least one anam cara in your life and “may you  always be in the gentle nest of belonging with your anam cara.”
