What family means to me…


My love for my family is my whole being – every ounce of me… loves every ounce of each of you~

I can’t believe I will be 55 this year.
In short… my life has been a very hard one.
Being a strong-wheeled woman I have had to fight my whole life and in turn, I have some family members to this day who can’t stand me. But that’s ok~ They truly never got to know me, or tried to understand me. We all have those people in our lives…If only they would see…family is everything to me~

THIS post though is for my family & friends that chose to love and care for me, truly…thank you from the bottom of my ❤️ know I love you and will always be here for you – as you have been for me~

In all the bad that happened throughout my life, you all have stepped in to be there to hold me up and to push me forward~

I am truly blessed to have all of you in my life.

You have been my rock…my solid ground…my saving grace~ You are deeply loved by me~

Families have their fights, their sadness & their pain.
But it always has its joys, it’s happiness & it’s wonderful moments~ Family is tied by blood and love… and no matter what happens family should always surround those in need and protect those that need us~

I have spent my life searching for family… And have truly been blessed to find so many cousins and family in my life’s journey. You truly amaze me with all your support throughout my time on this earth. Your amazing love is shown to me daily – I am called, texted, emailed, messaged.. in some form, reminded daily at how many truly love me~

I am humbled by each of you~

PLEASE find forgiveness for those who are nillynallys in your life, move past the hatred and the fighting. We have lost so many family members…life is too short, and we need to find love for one another, and get pasted this separation of family. We truly need to bond together to face this unknown world we have ahead of us… I truly worry for our descendants at the world we are leaving them~

I have found my calling…I was meant to be my family Historian/Researcher/Genealogist. I feel I must record all I can on our ancestors….before it is lost~

This is my purpose in life~

It is my legacy… bound by my love for family~
I will be doing it till the day I die~
