So great she had two birthdays!
My mother in law was an amazing woman! I'm so happy I got to meet her and spend time with her. She was strong and smart! She wouldn’t let anyone push her or her family around. She was 43 when she had Michael and he was the last of 11 children… I told you she was amazing! ;~)
I miss her like I knew her all of my life… she has been gone for just over four years now and it doesn’t seem that long in a way and in other ways it seems like forever… she would have been 86 today…
She was so very special she had two birthdays! Yes two! Today is the day she was actually born but she celebrated her birthday on August 6… the day she was christened!
Day 210 is St Brigid's Shrine in Faughart… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigit_of_Kildare a place that she loved very much. Michael and I took her there not to long before she died, on her request. We walked around with her and she knelt down and placed her head and her knees in the stones there… saying prayers and blessing herself quietly each time. It was a very special day to say the least. One that I will never forget…
I was told the stories of how the whole family would walk the few miles out to Faughart on a summer weekend and spend the day there… I can see why too, as it really is a lovely tranquil and peaceful place to be.
Today was a really good day… we walked and we sat and we soaked up the beauty of such a place! We thought and we remembered…
and we missed…
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
