We’re waiting for the phone call from the younger son, telling us he’s arrived home safely. Both of our sons are really good about keeping in touch. I know many families where the children aren’t close to their parents. We’re blessed with kids who are still very much a part of our lives, although they each have their own home and their own life.

Having my niece here helps me to understand the genetic testing that she encouraged me to undergo. She was able to go online and determine where my DNA test was in the process. And, she told me that I could get physical, health-related genetic information once I received word that my testing was complete. It should be fascinating, to be sure. From the genealogical research my sister Nancy did, we know that we have Melungeon DNA in our ancestry. We also have Cherokee Indian DNA. It will be interesting to find out what shows up in my DNA report.

Not much else to report other than light discussions about our upcoming trip in May, and what other visitors we expect to have between now and the end of the year.

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Be at peace, and know you are loved.


About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
