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.

I have been awarded the Kreative Blogger Award by Marcia at Vintage Frenchhen

Thank you Marcia, sorry it took so long for me to post this.....

7 things you may not know about me...I love to watch police chases on the news, I have tried for 22 years to speak Italian and CAN'T, I stalked my husband after we met--until he finally asked me out, I am terrified of heights, I once hid my shopping bag in the dryer until my husband left so he wouldn't see it, I dance around the house to Gio's music (even when he isn't around) and I LOVE Starbuck's Passion tea lemonade!!!!
