…Open the lid – you never know what comes out…

Yesterday I did not know the name of my great grandparents – today I do. Not because it was a secret but I never had any interest in knowing. Those who knew them and could have told us anything about them are either dead or they think they will live forever and have all the time in the world to write it down.

Lesson learned? I don`t think so. I think we will make the same mistake. Trusting faith to bring the knowledge to the next generation. Because – we will live forever…

    Very good point. we dont appreciate our elderly (and not so elderly) relatives enough and probably dont ask enough questions of them. When you do they can tell you the most amazing stories!
