Scripture from the Book of Mormon

"Are we not all beggars?"-- Mosiah, 4:19 I am trying to be better as a person. I think that I'm, at least, sometimes, way too judgmental. I'm low income but sometimes I wonder if I'm too harsh on those in the same boat I am in or even worse. I know I can be too harsh when it comes to my mom. I am with her all the time and she gets on my nerves. Maybe I shouldn't let her but of course it is easier said than done. You all know what I mean. I got to get it under control. I guess it's best to... Sign in to see full entry.

My sister's mood improved after getting 8 hours since she didn't sleep for 2 days. But she has some anger. I'm home now. I'm letting Ladybug stay at my sister's until I can find a place of my own. Sign in to see full entry.

sniff. NOT!

I'm in Kennewick. Washington, at my sister's place for my nephew's graduation party. I was wanting to get away from being at my mom's and the stress it causes. I was hoping to have a good time but unfortunately that isn't the case. Mom's caregivers have gone from five days (30 hours) a week to 3 days (15 hours) a week January 2013 when I moved in from Maplewood Gardens. Miranda, who handles my mom at Chesterfield, said to me last Thursday, June 12, 2013, that they considered me an informal... Sign in to see full entry.

still wondering about family.

While doing a family tree proved interesting, I still wonder about family and the dynamics. Specifically the ones that are still living. My sister was up here this past week. She was helping her son pack and get his stuff in storage. Because Mom has been stressing me out, my sister has decided to Ladybug away from me. It really upset me. I knew something was up. She presented the whole thing as it would be only for a month and bring her back when I got settled in a place of my own. Within a few... Sign in to see full entry.

Have you ever wondered?

Have you ever wondered about your family? I do, all the time. I always wonder where I get my traits and my relatives get theirs. I've been looking at my family tree to see if I can figure it. I have been finding that I'm descendant of a few of the accused and executed of the Salem Witch Trials, including Esther Elswell. That has been interesting seeing the pictures, the documentation, and reading the stories. It gives a fresh perspective on the history. Witch's Teat In the early modern time...

Paster Fred Phelps of Westboro Church Dies.

Pastor Fred Phelps died. He was pastor of Westboro Baptist Church. I don't like the acts of this man and his people. I live in Washington State. Tom Foley was from here. Phelps and his group showed up to protest. This biker group was there. If I understand correctly, somehow they prevented Phelps and his group from protesting. LOVE THOSE BIKERS!!!!

Getting started

I started my family tree almost a year ago. It is very time consuming but interesting. I learned about family in great ways. One great grandmother raised 5 children during the Great Depression after the death of my great grandfather. The eldest 2 children were his children from his first marriage. The younger 3 were children of my great grandparents. I found some not so great things too, like owning slaves. This is my maternal side of my family. My father’s family is a total mystery. He had...

Eleventh great grandmother, Joanna Blessing...

JOANNA BLESSING: "The origin of the Blessing family is obscure. The name Blessing has not been found after considerable search in the Norfolk County records at Norwich, and as the name Jone is the only instance of the name in the Yarmouth register for the period 1558 - 1611, it is possible that she was a foreigner. A general search for the name Blessing in records covering all States claim a German origin. A glance at the map of England has been unavailing, and families of the name Blessing in...

Family Tree Story-LBJ

As it turns out, LBJ is my 6th cousin. This is about his wife and how she was nicknamed "Lady Bird." I didn't write this story myself. I don't know who did. It might have been an interview Lady Bird did. Steel Magnolia AUGUST 23, 1999: Lady Bird Johnson has always recalled that her black nurse Alice Tittle gave her her nickname when she was two years old, because she was, Tittle said, "'purty as a lady bird.'"
