A Visit to the Grave

A few weeks ago, I finally had the chance to visit Madalene, Ugo and Jo!  Grant it, there was 6 feet between us, but it felt like just an inch.  As my mom, aunt, uncle and I sprawled out on a blanket and ate Eggplant Sandwiches, we all got a bit verklempt as we raised our drinks to her and the family she created. 

I sometimes ask myself if I'm going down the right path in life.  And it's days like this that help put all of that into perfect perception.  There is nothing in the world that makes more sense than being with my family and telling old stories.  In the last year, learning more about this family's history has helped me understand who I am and where I can go.  If you haven't tried this, you're missing out, because getting to know why you are the way you are is such a HIGH!

This past year has been about self rediscovery and Madalene has helped more than she'll ever know.  Cheers to you, Gma!
