I stumbled across this photo of Mother and me, taken almost exactly a year before she died. Gosh, I sure miss her. I’ve been crawling around the family trees recently, and I have sooo many questions I would love to ask her about folks, places, and just a ton of family history questions that will go unanswered.
I sure wish I had paid more attention, written stuff down…but life was always pretty busy…and we always think we have plenty of time left with our loved ones…but there is never a guarantee. And there is never a second chance, much as we would want one.
So, my Redding clan is having its annual reunion in hawt SOWEGA (that’s South West Georgia, for the uninformed) next month, and God willing, I’m going, armed with my computer, ready to record any new info people want to share. Also, ready to look up and share any info that I may have, should anyone want to know stuff.
Yep, digging can be fun. I have found several (previously unknown) cuzns online, and last Friday, MM and I met one of them for lunch. John (popular name in my family) is a sixth cuzn, but who’s counting? He is into genealogy, and into sharing, so I have gotten lots of info and photos from him over the years and was delighted we got a chance to finally meet:
I haven’t changed much in 10 years, right? Ha!
Happy Thursday, y’all. Keep smiling…and getting older!
