May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
This Traditional Gaelic blessing is where Rising Roads Recovery Services for Women began.
The blessing starts out talking about taking a walk where the roads rise up and make the journey a little less difficult. The wind is at your back, instead of your face, which helps you along instead of holding you back. The sun shining warm on you is pleasant instead of cold or too hot. The rain falls soft on your fields so that your crops grow. And lastly that “God,” as you understand it, holds you tight and protects you.
