Hmmm, family history research can bring up some interesting questions, such as: If my husband's name is MISSPELLED on our marriage certificate (not to mention the date of the marriage license is wrong on the certificate), does this in any way affect the validity of the marriage??? We never received a certified copy from the state, and today while doing family history online, I decided to see if our certificate was on the online database. It was, kind of. I recognized all of the information, except for the spelling of my husband's last name and the date of the marriage license (the marriage date was correct). I'm not seriously doubting whether or not we are legally married, but I can sure understand how genealogy records can be just plain wrong sometimes. I should probably call and see if we can correct it, but I'm afraid we might be WAY past the statute of limitations!
A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
