St. Patrick’s Day has taken on a new meaning to me over the past few years. It was two years ago yesterday that I received a dreadful phone call from a friend telling me that Will (my husband, who was then a service member of the U.S Army) had been critically wounded by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. I waited many agonizing hours, hoping to get any sort of news about how seriously injured he was. It wasn’t until the wee hours of St. Patrick’s Day morning that I finally got to hear his voice and know that he was going to be okay. It was the kindest piece of luck I had ever received. So now to me St. Patrick’s Day has become the day I knew my husband was going to live =) For that I will forever be grateful. So in honor of the special day, here are some things that you may or may not have known about St. Patrick’s Day. (Also, as a little gift you, we’ve included the newest HG movie clip at the bottom of this page! Only 12 days to go !!!).
