Kindness at Christmas and all year


I saw this on Facebook this morning and was reminded of last Christmas. We were going through a difficult time, mom had been in the hospital and I was staying round the clock with her. A few days before Christmas I ran over to Kmart to get a few supplies I would need to take care of her through Christmas. I didn't want to run out of anything on Christmas Day. I got my supplies and got in line. The lady in front of me looked around and smiled then she turned around again and told me to go ahead of her. I said no, but she kept on wanting me to go ahead. I thanked her. I guess I looked pretty sad with a buggy of medical supplies while everyone around had Christmas gifts. I stopped and thanked her again as I left. That small act of kindness meant so much to me that day and still a year later.

Veterans Day

Recently we had the chance to visit some cemeteries in McMinn and Meigs Counties in Tennessee and were pleased to see the cemeteries in good condition and a man and his granddaughter were placing flags on all the Veterans graves in the Edgemon Cemetery.

Blogging a Thing of the Past?

I started this blog on November 4, 2008. (Not sure how or why my blogoversary got changed but I was unable to correct it so I deleted it.) I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do or how to do it. In just a short time I found some wonderful Genealogy blogs and people who were helpful with genealogy information and blogging information.
Over the last few years I haven't had the time to blog much. My children finished school and you would think that would mean more time for blogging but I had less time. My mother required more and more of my time. Last December she was in the hospital for 7 days. She required round the clock care and so I stayed with her pretty much 24/7. My bother gave me a break some days. Mom's just want and need their daughters when they are sick.
Since she died in May my time has been busy with clearing her house. I'm still working on it!!!
I've looked at my blog trying to decide if I should delete everything, resume blogging, or just leave it and stop. I never had many followers so not many people read my post, I have gotten more spam comments since I haven't been posting than I did while I was posting.
I have even noticed that blogs I read don't post as often so my question is blogging a thing of the past? Really hate the thought of giving up on blogging.
