Yes!, I am not the only one…


I just received an email from RootsMagic News and I was relieved to read that others also are balancing life and work.

Here is a link to their article – it’s a quick read:

A quote:

“I enthusiastically jumped into that project and over the next few months wrote 10 chapters.  Then “life happened” and it was another year before chapter 11 appeared.”


Sometimes life does get in the way, but that is being alive.

      Sometimes life gives us a break so we can refresh our minds.

Sometimes this getting in the way break gives us a renewed energy.

How is your research going?

Summer always goes by way too fast, however, Autumn and Winter are great times to really delve into our genealogy and gather all the info together from the Spring and Summer and prepare for the family get together for the holidays.

Take just a few hours today and jot down

some family stories or info you have

noticed these last few weeks or couple of months.

Breathe, enjoy the days and family right now, then write about them later this year.

Perhaps you will have some questions to ask some of them, now is a great time to ask!
