Welcome (Céad Míle Fáilte!) to Small-leaved Shamrock

Just call me "Seasmhach": Small-leaved Shamrock turns 5!

"Seasmhach (Gaelic): Constant, durable, enduring, lasting"

If you've read much of Small-leaved Shamrock or my other blogs, you'll know that family is important to me.  I'm inspired by the faith and courage of my ancestors and fascinated by their life stories.  I love sharing those stories with my family, particularly my children.

Because family is so important to me, as much as I have loved writing this little blog since its beginnings in 2007, it has recently had to take a backseat to the needs of my living, breathing family members.  But I'm not giving up! I have hopes that Small-leaved Shamrock will gradually be returning to its more active life, but in the mean time, thanks to my readers for your patience.  I hope you'll enjoy reading through some of the many articles I've previously posted.

An old Irish recipe for longevity goes like this:

"Leave the table hungry. Leave the bed sleepy. Leave the table thirsty."

As for blogging longevity, my advice: take your time getting to all of the articles you plan to write! I can't seem to find time quickly enough when I come up with a great topic that I'd like to write about, so look for Smallest Leaf to be around awhile. It might take me years, but I love telling the stories of my Irish ancestors, so you can count on many more years of Small-leaved Shamrock!
