This Post Is Dedicated To My Newly Found Cousin.

I wrote this yesterday shortly after I spoke with a newly found cousin. I thought I should post it just to remember the moments of our conversation. I am sure many of you can relate to the sentiment.

Yes! I made contact with another cousin. Hooray! This cousin was searching out information on her grandfather and came across my blog by means of a simple Google search. One of the reasons that the word “Amazing” is in my blog title is for when situations like this happen. How is it possible that we should connect?  No word seems to fit better than “Amazing.” 
She was so appreciative because she knew only so much. I was so appreciative because I knew only so much.  We shared. We laughed. Her thanking me for the information almost brought me to tears. This information is not mine. This message is not mine, but I will gladly be the messenger.

These are just some ramblings I had rolling around in my mind. Details to come.
