A Belfast girl


Paddy was an Irishwoman and for those who might wonder, this is she. A kind, generous and gracious lady with twinkly blue eyes and curly hair. Wife, mother of three, super grandmother of seven and thoughtful friend to many. She was a great cook, skilled sewer, knitter of socks and jumpers, gardener, maker of rustic pottery and funky lopsided baskets. She was my Ma, my friend and not a day goes by that I do not still think of her.

Welcome to the community of people who hunch over keyboards when they aren't hunching over Berninas!

She is just beautiful. That is your inheritance. Enjoy it.
That is a special name to me.
