My mom called this morning and we chatted about the family tree. I have a passion for genealogy, but I haven’t had time to even pull out my charts for several years. Mom’s been working on her family, though, finding all kinds of neat tidbits.
My favorite ancestor is Bridget McCracken. I don’t know a lot about her, but in my head she’s a feisty Irish lass with a fiery temper. And how cool is her name?
My dad’s side of the family has a fancy Latin family motto to go with the sketch of the ancient English manor, but I’m going to cross-stitch myself a new family motto for myself.
RELEASE THE MCCRACKEN!
That’s the side of the gene pool I swim in.
