I wish sometimes that there was nothing more to life than working on Genealogy.
:) But then, I'd miss the family that I was working on it for. :) Unfortunately, being disabled the common cold and flu and
other minor annoyances can have a catastrophic impact on my life.
Family comes first, being with them, loving them, helping them with homework,
going to sports events, attending SCA events (the Society for Creative Anachronism...one of my other passions!)
I feel guilty when I look at the folder of changes that I haven't done
to my files where people have pointed out errors to me and/or are sharing information that I haven't entered in 8 months or
a year :( Or when I look at the subdirectory full of census images that I still need to enter into my family file.
But then I look into my daughter's face and see a smile because I'm there
at a concert, or teaching her to sew, Or I get a sweet, "I Love you, Mom" from a teenage son that doesn't say it very
often. :) Or my husband makes it very clear that he considers me his best friend, and yes, he wants my company on that 50
mile ride into town, even though we do nothing but talk.
So, I apologize to everyone who has to wait on me to get my health together to have enough time to
devote to this hobby, and I hope I haven't been rude enough to not let people know that I DO have a file of stuff that I AM
going to correct. It's just that my family is the reason I'm doing this...and if it comes to a choice of spending time with
them and making more memories...as opposed to catagorizing and filing memories for future generations...I'm gonna hafta go
with making the new ones.
Love to you all, and I hope you and your families are well,
