As a child, St. Patrick’s Day conjured up an odd mix of emotions. Mainly stress over the fact that I didn’t have anything green enough to avoid getting pinched.

I never really understood the point behind the supposed holiday, and just sort of played along to avoid those painful fingers eager to inflict pain during the school day. However, after having lived in Ireland for a total of seven years, I enjoy a deeper understanding of the day—and the man whom it honors.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
