Turning 46

I’ve not been big on celebrating my birthday in quite some time, so this year was no different. My husband is on the road for work and the house has been quieter, not that he necessarily is noisy 😉 Anyhow, as time creeps up on us as it does me I had a lot of things on my mind this birthday (June 11). I … Read More Turning 46

What is in a name?

A name is given to everything. Trees, Insects, Things, People. Literally everything. We name our children, pets, and even our automobiles. So when the prompt for week 6 in #52Ancestors came up as Favorite Name, I was stuck. Over the last few days, I have diligently to update my ancestry records online from documents I received after my mother’s death in 2004. I have … Read More What is in a name?

Promises, promises

Many times when the new year rings in we tend to make resolutions and promises of change that never come about. Well… I for one did make a promise to myself to make a change AND I kept it! I changed my website to make it more mobile friendly and I changed three of my book covers. Makeover Madness was happening in my home … Read More Promises, promises

An invitation to dinner

An invitation to dinner is week fours writing prompt from #52Ancestors! To imagine having any one of my ancestors, family members known or unknown to dinner is just exciting. But how does one narrow down that invitation to just one when your ancestors date back past the 1400s. That’s a lot people to choose from. Would I want the person I was closest to? … Read More An invitation to dinner

Longevity

This weeks #52Ancestors prompt is about longevity… the oldest relative you had or something along that lines. While, I know I am a day or so behind I’ve had this topic on my mind trying to determine who’d I consider. I thought of all the ones who have passed on and their lives. The ones who died young. The ones who died after a … Read More Longevity

Favorite Photo

Week 2 prompt for #52ancestors is a favorite photo. I thought long and hard about what I thought my favorite family photo was. This was a true inner struggle.  I first considered photos of my grandparents (either side), (below is Vera and Cecil Dyess together, Vera Dyess ) (I couldn’t locate photos of my maternal grandparents to share in time of this post)     … Read More Favorite Photo

Genealogy and Words

Over the last few years, I have slowly begun to dive into the genealogy of my family. Years ago, my mother worked an endless number of hours gathering data, researching documents, and joining organizations to learn more about our history. Not just hers or mine but that of our family! I’m blessed to have all her research even if much of it is only … Read More Genealogy and Words

Reading from the grave

While on vacation many people visit sites they have never seen or not seen in awhile, I visit a cemetery. Yep. I grew up in Liberty County, Georgia and the history just seems through the air. So, where else would you find the best history but a historical cemetery! During my visit I did a short reading from my book Born of The Veil … Read More Reading from the grave

24

Twenty-four… the number of days left in the year. What will you do with 24? Will you do something kind? Will you give to those in need? Will you spend time with friends you haven’t seen or spoken to in a long time? Will you see and spend time with family? Twenty-four – three weeks and 3 days until the year is gone to … Read More 24

Having a purpose

When we are children we say we’re going to grow up and be police officers, doctors, firefighters, and more… It’s not till we are in our teens that we start to see with clearer vision what we are meant to do, not that we always listen. But as an adult, have you discovered your purpose? I must admit it has taken me a while … Read More Having a purpose
