We've celebrated in some pretty fantastic ways; uniqueness, meaning, name tags we wear, and our totally amazing middle names.
I guess it only makes sense that we should end by discovering where our names came from and what our heritage looks like.
Genealogy is a terrific way to understand where you are based on where you came from.
I hope you'll seek your history out, if you haven't already done so.
The photos above are of my family. The tree lives in my living room, although you can't quite tell what is there our family started our tree with a photo of our family values.
The bottom photo depicts those values in the form of a Wordle; a fun site that creates word depictions in unique and unusual displays. Our family's values are: God, Loving, Marriage, Family, Neighbor, Health, Sobriety, Security. Each represents a value we, as a family, carry with us daily.
I'm so thankful you are part of my blogging family.
