Madelines Memory

A Little Bit About.....

My photo
Madeline was my grandmother on my mother's side. She was an amazing little Irish woman. How blessed we were to have her. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I am the wife of my bestfriend, the mother of four amazing kids ages 25, 22, 17 and 4. I am a grandma to 2 beautiful little boys and the mom-in-law to a terrific man. I come from a big wonderful family. My parents are my idols. My dad was always the silent one and my mom was the "tough" one. I have so much admiration for them and love being their daughter. I have 4 sisters and one brother, but I only have 3 surviving sisters now. My sister Michele passed away suddenly in 1989. I married into an amazing Italian family. I believe in God and Angels, and Ghosts. Not bad ones, but ones that just can't decide if they should stay or go. I believe that if you want something bad enough, you just need to believe and it will be yours. I believe that everyone means something to someone and this life without you would be miserable.

Feelin' Lucky??

I hope everyone has a chance to check out all of the Green being celebrated this week...I feel very special this time of year because my great grandfather came here from Ireland long, long ago. Although I am somewhat of a "Mutt" I am most proud of my Irish heritage. (I so wish I had the accent).
While many of us are always looking for that ever elusive Four leaf clover, or little Leprecaun I am feeling very lucky to be living in a Free country, have a big loving family, great friends, an awesome husband, amazing children and grandson, a job that I can escape to 3 days a week, a beautiful home, food on the table....on and on and on.
We ALL must remember to count our blessings and consider ourselves VERY LUCKY to be living the lives we live and enjoy!!
Luck O the Irish to you all, Dana
