Threads That Bind...

A few weeks ago I did a surname search for a project that I was working on and happened upon Ancestry.com. After finding the information I needed, I decided to type in my dad's name just to see if any thing came up. Much to my surprise, a forum came up with a post from 2006 from someone that was looking for his grandfather. After reading the post, I realized this was the son of my long deceased half brother.

What a joy his son has been to correspond with. I have found out things about my dad's side of the family that I never knew. My grandmother was the great grand daughter of a Texas Cherokee American Indian Chief, Chief John ‘Duwa’li’ Bowles, that died in the last Indian battle in Texas in 1839. Strangely enough, his Historical Marker is only a few miles from our current home. I have often wondered what brought me to this beautiful part of Texas fourteen years ago that feels so much like it has been my home forever. Now I know...the good Lord and the threads that bind...

Hello, Edna! There is no way you could possibly remember me; quite a while back, you had a listing on Ebay (I believe it was a star with a face painted on it)that a nasty person accused you of copying and in the most classy way, you responded by apologizing that you had imitated God because it was He that made the stars, moon, etc. I am so glad to run into you again and I hope all is well with you! You are one of the most inspiring gals I know!!! Take care!
