my favorite things

Working on family history really is one of my favorite things. I have been doing more on; I just worked on 3 more pages on my family history site on GooglePages. I do feel like I get something done when I do that.

My life has been full of lots of other stuff, though, the actual Stuff of Life. Taxes done, but maybe we will file an amended return. Our youngest son is working hard to graduate from high school and get into college. We are working on the plan to move to Washington State this summer. And there is the associated paring down, sorting and packing. Plus dealing with the VA, volunteering with the American Red Cross, the local Senior Center, and working two shifts at our family history center.

Another one of my new found favorites is that every night as I retire I write in a journal about at least two times in the day when I could see the hand of the Lord in my life or the lives of my loved ones. Only two?! I really feel the presence of the Spirit in my life. I KNOW I need help! I pray for help, and I appreciate the help I know I get, and that I am able to participate in. I pray to be a blessing, as well as to have our family's needs met.

Family history particularly is how I am on the lookout to be a blessing. Being involved in family history has been such a blessing to me :-) I have learned what ever I know about computers because of how it has been a tool for family history. I sing because of my testimony, and my family's heritage of faith to me. I serve because of the examples of service I have from my family :-)
