Welcome to P.S. Annie!

This blog is titled in honor of my great-grandmother Annie Black Gunter. My name, Suzanne, was chosen because my daddy wanted to honor his grandmother and her sister Suzie. It is a tribute to all who have gone on before me.

It is titled P.S. because, after the good-byes are said and the leaving is done, there's always just one more thing that I meant to say. So, this blog is a depository for things left unsaid, much like the P.S. at the end of a letter.

PS Annie! is a blog about family and life. As I dig deeper still into my own family history, there will be more genealogy-themed posts. For fun, I also participate in various memes and linkies. I appreciate your feedback very much.

I hope that you enjoy your visit here!

Your sis in Christ,

PS! All comments will be responded to via the blog and, on occasion, via e-mail. I am a faulty human and may miss responding sometimes or be very late in responding. Please forgive me for that. I do appreciate each comment and visit very much!

Happy New Year!

David and I would like to wish all of you a very happy, healthy New Year. May 2015 see your dreams come true and bring your families closer together than ever.

Blessing for the New Year

May the new year bring
The warmth of home and hearth to you.
The cheer and goodwill of friends to you,
The hope of a childlike heart to you.
The joy of a thousand angels to you,
The love of the Son and God's peace to you.

Sick Computer

My computer appears to be having some serious problems and may not be salvageable.  I am making this post from my phone, but that probably won't happen often. I need to figure out how to increase the text size on my phone so that I can see what I am typing!

David has generously offered me the use of his laptop computer, but it has the Windows 8 operating system and does not like me. The feeling is mutual.

Please be in prayer for the University of Houston community. A dorm student has committed suicide. Please also pray especially for this student's family.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Genealogy Pinterest Challenge Day 15

I have joined a genealogy challenge on Pinterest. You can learn more about it here: Genealogy Girl Talks.

Challenge Day 15: My daddy, Jimmy Ray Gunter, died of a heart attack. Daddy had just had his 71st birthday 6 days before. My father-in-law, Robert Bruce McClendon, Jr., died of a dissecting aneurysm of the aorta. He was only 52 years old. There are many cardiac events sprinkled across our family history.

Our oldest daughter has Marfan Syndrome, which itself comes with a multitude of heart issues. My husband has Marfanoid Syndrome. He met most, but not all, of the criteria for Marfan Syndrome. There is nothing that we can do to prevent Marfan Syndrome to my knowledge, but there are things that we can do to help protect the heart. Eating healthy foods, the more natural, unprocessed, the better, and we can exercise at a safe level for our individual bodies. Avoiding alcohol abuse and not smoking can also help protect our hearts and other organs as well as those of our loved ones.
