I have my wonderful husband and an awesome son who is 11. Together my son and I like to do scrapbooking and take pictures. I am working on writing children's books but have not gotten a chance to get them published. I have added another two pages to my book and now looking for an illustrator. My son has also joined me in writing a book.
I also like to collect recipes and try them out on my 2 guys.
I love music and reading about my favorite musicians. I even reintroduced my son to Jan and Dean.
I found this site when I was looking for info on my grandfather.
I am enjoying looking through this site and hopefully find more loved ones.
I want to thank everyone for making me feel welcome.
I found some of my favorite Native American sayings that I would like to share with you and hope that ya'll enjoy them and find them comforting as I do.
There is no death,
only a change of worlds.
Don't be afaid to cry
it will free your mind of sorrowful thoughts
If the eyes had no tears
the soul would have no rainbows
They are not dead
who live in the hearts
they leave behind.
When you were born
you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.
I have found some more family members.
