Come! Share the Journey of Family Heritage Stories, Laced With Patterns of Living Throughout Generations of Time. We Are All A Remnant of A Rich Tapestry, Waiting to Be Rewoven Together.

Welcome

Many of us find ourselves longing for a connection to something, or someone from the days we cannot touch; sometimes inspired by a photograph or a scrap of withering notation we found tucked away between the pages of a book in a long-forgotten trunk, or some emotion we cannot ignore. There seems to be a common thread that connects us all to the past; be it a name, an expression, or a geographical placement in this timeline we call mortality. Whatever it is that connects us, and draws our thoughts and hearts to one another, seems to be the passion that brings us to this blogging thing. My hope for any connection leads me to share with you some commonalities in blogging, daring to claim a place among the great writers; but if nothing more than my own journaling, it will be a tangible way for me to make sense of my own individuality, vulnerabilities, and emotions as I continue on this journey called life. I hope this blog may encourage and uplift.

My Mother's Family


My mother had inherited many wonderful pieces of her family puzzle; in the shapes of photographs, letters, and artifacts that assisted us in getting started researching her side of the family.
One of those pieces_the shape of a hand written letter dated 23 Mar 1914, allowed me to peek into the personality of my 3rd great grandmother, Clemence Hiser Sands. I will call her Grandmother Sands. I will share it with you, and let you feel her spirit, still resonating courage and stamina, after all these years.
