L is for ...


The most important word in any Family History.

Love of my family is why I am so passionate about researching my ancestry because I feel those ancestors are the ones we shouldthank for making us who we are today.

We have our ups and downs 
as many families do
I like to think our Love 
will always shine through.

My husband and I have been married for 33 years this November.

We have been blessed with two wonderful children.

My darling daughter has just given me my first grandchild, a gorgeous little boy.

My beloved son envelopes me in huge bear hugs whenever he visits.

My Dad is fit and well and loves to travel.

My dearly loved Mum passed away in April this year.  She was always interested in my family history findings.  Mum was always there for my brother and I in both good times and bad as she was for my children, her cherished grandchildren.  Mum married a wonderful man who I am proud to call my stepfather.

I consider myself very lucky to have known a lot of love from both sets of grandparents.

Many people never get to experience the special love of a grandparent. We were lucky.

I wish I could turn back the clock and hold just once more my loved ones who are no longer here.  Remember to always tell your family that you LOVE them.


  1. You have been blessed, Kerryn. Thanks for sharing your precious family memories.

  2. Love it! Nothing else matters :)

  3. Love and a happy family means the world, and creates such strong happy memories.

  4. An absolutely perfect posting for "L" Kerryn ... and how wonderful that you have your arms totally full of love, wrapped around that beautiful new little Grandson:-)
