Day 353: Mercy

I feel like I am playing a game of mercy and I am ready to shout it out.  As if things weren't challenging enough at work, let's add more.  I can't really talk about what is going on, but I just want to crawl under a desk and hide sometimes.

One neat moment I had recently was looking through my grandmother's bible from my dad's side.  She passed away before I was born, so the only way I know her is through my dad.  As I was thumbing through I found a record for a bowling game.  I apparently didn't get my bowling talent from that part of the family :).  How awesome to pull out a piece of paper that my aunt had stowed away in her mom's bible.  It almost immortalizes them for a moment.  I wish I had the chance to know them.  Genealogy becomes more and more interesting as I learn about where I came from.  I wish you could smell this bible.  It is what every book should smell like.
