Christmas Eve 1973 – This was my first Christmas as a mom. Here my ten-month-old daughter Joy and I are opening a gift. Before motherhood snagged me, I had no idea you could love a little person so deeply and with so much abandon. Motherhood opened up a new world for me, and though I entered it a little shakily and with much uncertainty, I entered it wholeheartedly. I was all of twenty.
This started out as the archive blog for my original blog over at the News-Messenger under the auspices of then City Editor, Eric Lawrence. Times change, Eric's gone, and I no longer maintain the original Desktop Genealogist.
So welcome to the Desktop Genealogist Unplugged. Pull up a chair, kick off your shoes, and enjoy. It's pretty informal around here!
