We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of contains within this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories and future promise.
November 22nd - don’t forget where you came from
Family faces are magic mirrors, Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past present and future.

I’m thankful for my ancestors. I come from a wide and varied heritage. But one thing seems to be predominant in their character. They were all strong people who worked hard for what they had. The were committed to each other and made a good life for themselves and their families.
While I’m 50 per cent Hungarian, but I also have English, German, French, Irish and even American Indian in my blood. Maybe more! One of my Great Greats settled in Virginia and took an Indian for a wife. I would love to know more about their story.
My dads parents came from Hungary.in search of a better life. The were immigrants from the Old World. My grandpa worked in the steel mills and didn’t have an easy life. They lived through the great depression and like most lost everything and had hard times to overcome.
I come from a long line of hard working people that wanted a better life. I’m thankful for each and everyone of them. They have made who I am.
Other things may change us, but we start and end with family.
