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 do love the Spring....driving to work this morning (without my camera available of course) I spotted the sheep that farmers hire to mow down the fields. Amongst the adult sheep were some oh so sweet babies-content following their mamas, running and playing...just enjoying the sunshine.
I love to sit outside and hear the birds sing...we actually have a nest in our attic that I have threatened my husband with his life if he tries to board up the opening before the babies have taken flight.
I love to watch my son play outside in the warm sunshine and see all of the things that he is seeing for the "first time" (since he was too young last year to understand). He picks flowers and watches butterflies and hummingbirds with such sweet eyes and his little voice mumbling curiousities.."Aahh!" "Huh?" "Mama! uuhh"
I took my son and grandson on a walk last weekend around the neighborhood-they were amazed at the flowers and grasses growing in the fields..The smiles they had were enough to melt your heart.
Spring is such a beautiful new is a beautiful time to give ourselves a new beginning too.


  1. Ahhhh....SPRING!! I love it!

  2. My favorite picture of all is of the boys! Thanks for stopping by my blog too! It will be fun to follow your journey of raising a little one again! I imagine we will be able to laugh together often :)
