GRAINS OF SAND

Bostic, Grains of Sand

BOSTIC’S THERE ARE SO MANY OF US!!!!! I feel like we are as numerous as grains of sand!!!

Finally, I found Peter’s family!!! Still haven’t pinned down his death year, but definitely after 1910 but prior to 1920.

I feel like the personification of the words below:

I come as One, I stand as Ten Thousand ~ Maya Angelo

I feel like I am continually in a cat and mouse chase or on an emotional roller coaster; as all you Bostic’s know.

I am either “OVER THE MOON” or “I AM SOOOOOOO CRYING RIGHT NOW”.

Genealogy Research is a lesson in perseverance (you’re looking for someone and each day you go to bed with the words, I haven’t found you yet, but I’m closer I will find you). More than that, it’s a blessing!!

Through documents, pictures and stories told, you get to know these people. People that become a part of you.

The other night, I sat with my son Ryan as he read my blogs to his wife, my grand-kids and myself. Everyone coming away with a wow moment. Reading about your own family, it was cool!!!

EMOTIONS!!!

I always tell myself don’t post when you are feeling emotional, but the thing is, isn’t finding love and losing love emotional? Holding on, letting go or safely packing it away as a keepsake. This is every emotion I experience with Genealogy Research.

Every family member found is like that feeling you get when you meet that special someone. You know, the butterflies in the stomach, the rapid beating of your heart and the smile that seems to be permanently plastered on you face.

BOSTIC’S GIVE ME BUTTERFLIES!!

Every death certificate is love loss. Not the love lost that when you sit back you say, “I’m so glad that’s over”. Not the kind of love lost that says, “wow, I can breathe again”.

It’s the love loss that says, “I would choose you every time, it was worth every moment, I would do this over and over again”. It’s the kind of love loss that you unfold every so often and place up to your nose, just to catch the scent of him, her or them.

I am totally in love with my BOSTIC FAMILY, I would choose you every time. You are worth every moment, I would do this over and over again.

On a lighter note, never ask a “Rock Star” to write a blog post for you!!!! Aunt Vicky Alfred, I want uncle Jake’s story by Sunday, or you are FIRED!!!! LOL!!!!!! The one person who I had no qualms about sharing in my blogging experience is out of control!!!!! That Ukulele Band Life!!!!
