Who do you think you are?

This show makes me cry every single time I watch it. (Which is usually when I'm trying to work out on the treadmill, which is impossible when you are crying, at which point I usually collapse onto the couch with a big wad of tissues unil I've cried it all out, then finally end up turning off the episode until I am through with my workout so I can cry and not risk breaking my neck falling off the treadmill!)

It reminds me how strong the bond of family is, and how far back it reaches throughout our family tree. The amazing people we come from, and how they are all up in Heaven aware of us and rooting for us, and cheering us on, and telling us we can do it because they did it, and we are part of them! (Now see, I'm getting choked up again!)

Watch it today if you haven't seen it before.

My hubby and I are going to be taking a family history class in church together. We have been meaning to do it for a very long time, but I will admit it is very daunting to me. I took a genealogy class in college (9:00 AM, freshman year... not a good combination.) and didn't do so great. (I think I pulled a C... and not without a LOT of begging.) So I am quite nervous about it, but hopefully I will catch the "fire" and feel inspired. Although I don't know if I'm quite ready for visitants from the other side of the veil to prod me along in my family research. I think I might keel over with a heart attack if that were to happen. I told my husband if anyone were to visit him to please tell them he does his entertaining in the livingroom so as not to freak out his wife. 

Anyway, this show "Who do you think you are" is certainly sparking that fire within! (This particular episode had me just sobbing!)

Did you see last year's episode on Lisa Kudro? I'm STILL crying about that one!!!! Ancestors murdered by Nazi's. And she found her Dad's long-lost cousin who escaped. They thought he was dead. Still CRYING!!!!!
