To stretch,
To scream,
To stand,
To breathe,

Silence,
Listen,
Living Life.

I added a large amount of ancestors as well as cousins in the family history section.  If interested in your own family history I have found ancestry.com is good as well as all the other sites,  my cousins I found are through relative finder and works off my personal ancestors in the family history database. I have access to most family history sites through my church.
Happy hunting!
