It's hard to believe that it's been over 2 years since I have posted anything on any of my blogs.
It's a new year and although I'm entering the new year on a sad note (my mother died on Christmas day), perhaps my mother's death will have the opposite effect on me than my dad's death in 2011.
Based on my dad's death, I know the one thing that helps me in the grieving process is to stay busy. With dad, unfortunately, the genealogy fell by the wayside as I got back into my crafts. And yes readers, as you know, I've been struggling to get back to the genealogy ever since.
It will be still be a struggle. For many years, mom was my sidekick, my trusted assistant, when it came to my research. She was also the one that inspired me to start this journey of searching for my ancestors as see inspired me with stories from her side of the family and in later years somehow was able to tell me more about dad's side. Things that even dad didn't know.
You see momma treasured family and was always up for getting to know more of dad's family as well as her own.
So, bear with me as I continue to struggle but hopefully finally get back to my research. And
Happy New Year everyone!
