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.

Pink Saturday for My Sister


My sister, Marcia at vintagefrenchhen.blogspot.com always has such amazing pink items (along with just about everything else she blogs about). You really must go and check her blog out....I am so very jealous(and she is also having a giveaway of some fabulous things, so be sure to sign up). She is having a wonderful time right now with her son, Frankie who just got back for his 3rd? 4th? tour in Iraq. We are all so happy he has come home to us safe and sound. This blog is in honor of her today. She has always been one of my very best friends and I am so blessed to have her as my sister. She has such amazing talent when it comes to decorating her adorable little "Red Cottage" and she is such a sweet and kind person, everyone adores her. She is an amazing cook and had her own little catering business for a while. Some of the foods she comes up with I would never even have imagined, but she did take after our aunt in that respect (some of us thought she may have been adopted since the majority of us in the family are your common, everyday cooks except for her)
My sister is about 8 years older than I am (I am #6 and she is #5 in the line up and I was an accident for sure), but for most of our lives we have been very close. She was always there for me when I needed someone and I was always at her house- especially when her children were small. She has such an amazing relationship with her kids and they love her so much.
Marcia is the only one of us kids that live close enough to our parents to help them out when they need it. And although we all know how tough that can be... she always has the right thing to say or the right thing to bring when needed.
I know this really has nothing to do with PINK SATURDAY and I really have just gone on and on, but my sister is very special to me and I just wanted All of you to know.
Happy Pink Saturday and thank you Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/

  2. Love that pink chick! My mom had a gold one just like that when I was a girl. I remember being with her when she bought it at a newly-opened dollar store.
