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.

Happy Halloween Birthday to my Dad

Today is my dad's 88th birthday.....doesn't he look amazing?
My dad is such an amazing person. He is so caring and giving, never thinking of himself before others. He and my mom have been married for 68? years and I can only remember them arguing one time (and that was pretty devestating- even though it only lasted about 5 minutes).
I love my parents so very much and I am so proud to be their daughter.
I love you dad, Happy Birthday

Late for Pink Saturday

So sorry my friends, but I am late posting once again.
I have had a hard week. On Thursday I stayed home from work with a Horrific migraine...and I still feel as though I am weak from it. Uugghh.
Well, I am ready for Fall and the leaves to turn....although where I live that doesn't really happen, so I thought these images would suffice.
Happy Fall to you all and a lovely Pink Saturday. (Thank you Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound)
