The Personal Side of Susie

Me – I am Susie Arnold Raffey – Wife, Mother, Daughter, Friend, Colleague. And in that order, generally. I love my family – each and every member of my kin folk, in the law and out, and for this I feel very fortunate. I am also grateful to have had the best of friends as well as awesome co-workers. This isn’t to say that I haven’t had complaints involving the above people at some point in time, God knows, I could complain! He also knows how to change that.

Amidst this time of change, I challenged the idea that all things flow from either a place of love or a place of fear. I found that initially, I was wrong, that it does make sense after all. A different way of dealing with everyday life, it has become for me, which I share at Another blog I have where I write of random thoughts or trips we take, is is where I put my spin on sentimentalism and talk about the abundance of stuff. It is also tied somewhat to my online store,

And then there is my Shutterfly site, where I share photos from both mine and Dave’s family tree. Some photos are from long ago, some more recent. All are personal to us somehow, even though they include generations that were before our time. Kin folks we have never met are in many of the photos. Passed-down and given to me by my grandmother, mother and my in-laws, I am looking for help in identifying some of the people as well as verifying stories. Others who have no story, need one, so please help if you can, my kin folk, and friends of kin folk.

Speaking of friends, do you suppose we could have a photo of you or your loved one on our site? Anyone who has ever known us or a member of our families, just may find themselves on our site. Private and password protected, the Shutterfly site is, so to gain access you need to sign-up with Shutterfly and then ask to become a member of our site, called My LIP Service Project .com.
