The Luck of the Irish

March 17, 2021

The luck of the Irish may have seemed by chance, but I think we all know that gratitude is what got them to be so lucky. This St. Patrick’s Day we want to practice gratitude, so here is a quick and simple craft for adults and kids to do just that!

Everyone always hears about writing down your “gratitudes” and practicing gratefulness, but what does it really mean and why is it so important? Gratitude is a trending word on the internet these days and for good reason. There has been multiple  research studies done to show that writing down what you are grateful for can positively affect your life tremendously. The Greater Good Science Center wrote an article titled, “The Science of Gratitude” where they explain all the benefits of writing down your gratitudes. Some of these benefits include more satisfaction with life, better physical health, better sleep, less fatigue, increased happiness and positive mood, and so much more. So why not spend some time on St. Patrick’s day to sit down with the children and write down/talk about why you are all “lucky”. Starting this gratitude practice at an early age with children will build a strong foundation that will hopefully create a positive perspective on life throughout the years. This St. Patrick’s Day craft is extremely simple with almost no supplies needed. All you have to do is grab your paper and colorful pencils, and start practicing gratitude!




I just wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how happy my husband and I am. Our nanny, Rebecca, is a superstar! Her cheerful personality feels like a ray of sunshine in our home. She loves our babies and really bends over backwards to do anything she can think of to make our lives easier. We feel so lucky to have found her through you.

Using a placement agency is new for us and we weren't sure whether it would be worth the expense, but we were very pleasantly surprised. You really found the right fit for us, and we are very grateful for all of your help. You are a pleasure to work with and we cannot thank you enough!
