Giving Thanks 2014

Thanksgiving 2014 www.desperatelyseekingsurnames.com

Today, and every day, I am thankful for family, friends and good health. For those I have lost, I am thankful of the time I spent with them and the memories I can look back on with a smile. I am thankful for a home to live in and food to eat. I am thankful I have the ability help others in various ways throughout the year.

I am thankful my country gives me the right to say what I want through the medium of my choice. Through this blog I am able to document and share stories and photos of my ancestors. Through social media I am able to share those stories far and wide and reach cousins I never knew I had.

I am thankful that Google Analytics tells me people are visiting this blog and sharing my content. Thank you to those who subscribe to my blog or follow in a reader. Thank you to those that comment, share, +1 or RT a post and help me share my stories.

For all of these little things and all of the big things the man upstairs allows to happen, I am thankful.
