I love it when you post "meaningful" stories on your blog. This weekend we spent listening to General Conference, a time when many different leaders of our church speak on any given topic. Welfare was chief among them. Trent took much of the messages to mean we should ask for help from the church because our leaders are here to help us all (congregation or not) I took the preponderance of welfare messages to mean we needed to donate more to help others.

I love that giving and asking to give are universal to our species. And I love that in your story that the mayor outlined his duty to help and their duty to ask for help.

Thanks for sharing your stories. Maybe I should say "our" stories.


Thanks for posting this. I am having a bit of frustration trying to look up information on my husband's dad's family. They are from Poland. Chad's dad and his dad's 2 sisters were under the age of 5 when their father passed away. They have little information about the Wasileski side of the family and I am unable to find information. They never met many of the Wasileski family members, so we don't have any information to help us. There are a few documents here and there, but we are at a standstill with our search. Chad's great grandfather emigrated from Poland. We do not know the grandmother's name, but it could be Stella or Anna. I found one census record but not sure where to go from there. Passing down the family history is very important to me because my boys will carry on the Wasileski name and I would love to know the history of the Wasileski men and their journey to America. Any tips that you can offer will be helpful!
