Thankful Thursday: We Met At Last!

Earlier in the week, I mentioned that something truly special occurred this past Saturday. I had wonderful time over the weekend visiting New York City with my husband and two kids. Well, they are not the only people I had a wonderful time with. Those of you who have been following my journey for sometime now, may recall a series of posts I did last year that revolved around discovering long lost family members that were connected to my maternal grandfather Lemuel Harrison's brother, William Arthur Harrison. If you missed those posts, here are the links:

Thankfull Thursday: A Comment Goes Unnoticed...No Longer!

On Saturday February 2, 2013, I finally met with my cousin Bill's wife, Erika and their lovely daughter Kiira for lunch in New York City. Bill is the son of William Arthur Harrison Sr. Unfortunately, Bill was not able to attend...but at last it was so good to see and hug family in person.  What lovely people!



Erika and Kiira

To Erika and Kiira, thank you so much to both of you for such a memorable experience. In addition to meeting them, I also had the pleasure of meeting an old family friend, Eloise and her mother. Eloise grew up with my cousin Bill. 

Eloise is seated on the far right and her mother is in the center.

This is why I blog people!
