Family History Comes Forward, Too...

Family history is all about family.  It doesn't matter if they lived a century ago, or if they are living right here and right now.

Admittedly, we may get along with our ancestors a little better than we get along with those we have relationships with now, but it does include everyone - whether they are living or whether they are deceased.

I have been terribly swamped as I continue to refine presentations, work on my accreditation, and do research.  But occasionally, I must step back and make sure that the ones who are living and and dear to my heart know just how I feel.

Friday evening, after Kerry and I worked at the Columbus Temple, we received a text from son Erik wanting to know if we wanted to meet for dinner.  Of course!  We went to a local restaurant, Wendell's Pub, and had such a delightful evening together.

Even though son Jordan and his little family live about two hours away, we don't get to see them as much as we would certainly like to.  Melissa always makes us feel welcome, and the three little grandboys - well, it doesn't get much better than that!

Miss Harmony is on the road all the time now.  Occasionally, she gets to stop in Ohio, and when she does, we try to make an effort to see her.

And of course, we can't forget the little people who live in the north country!

Each time we have an interaction with our little family, we are creating more family history.  Kerry and I certainly hope our memories that follow us will be good and positive ones. 

It's what family is all about...
