He showed his friend the workings of the Leprechaun trap that he built then he helped her build one of her own. "Maybe we'll catch one this year", he said.
Addendum: St. Patrick's Day
Early in the morning, he found edible gold coins in the trap, but the tricky leprechaun got away again! We celebrated with green bagels for breakfast.
"May you be blessed with good friends.
May you learn to be a good friend to yourself.
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, truth,
and light that you need for your journey."
- John O'Donohue (A Friendship Blessing)
