It's My Blogoversary Today!

Wow.  Today is my second Blogoversary.  Had it not been for Thomas I would have forgotten completely.  Thank you Thomas!
It's hard to believe that I have been here blogging for 2 years.  Of late, I have not been that active.  I've had trouble getting back into the groove this year.  So much has happened and so much going on.  I've made so many good friends since I started this blog, and I enjoy all of you.

Ancestor Approved Award - Late of course.

Marian Wood over at Climbing My Family Tree and Laura Ann at Dreaming About Home gave me the Ancestor Approved award.  I am so late at getting this taken care of that most of you have already received it.  I want to thank Marian and Laura Ann very much for the award.  I'm sorry I have not gotten it up before now.  

I am  asked to list ten things that I have learned about any of your ancestors that has surprised,
humbled, or enlightened me.  I'm not sure after all these years that I could keep it at ten.  I am often surprised by the strength of character and tenacity that it took to survive the hardships of earlier times.  I am humbled and enlightened by the faith and vision they held fast to.
