The Past’s Perfect Present
My African Ancestry Experience has allowed me to meet some amazing people. Today has brought yet another one of them into my life. Sheila Kenner stopped by the office today to pick up a MatriClan Test Kit.
Her brother, who is the family genealogist, turns 50 on Saturday and finding their roots is her gift to him. She told a story of getting her sisters’ opinion of her gift idea. She wanted them to guess what it was, so she gave them the following clues:
“It is tangible, although you can’t kick, see or touch it. It will touch you and you can feel it deep down inside.”
“It’s not a trip, although it does involve a journey.”
“It involves technology although it doesn’t require upgrading. It can be built upon.”
“You may only use it once although its usefulness and value will serve over and over.”
“It is a mirror unto yourself that helps to you to see, project, and appreciate a bigger picture.”
All of us in the office were touched by the depth of her perceptions of our service. I had to share it with you. We’re excited to get her brother’s reaction to his gift and the entire family’s African Ancestry Experience. I’ll let you know what happens!
Oh, and by the way, her sisters are getting him a GPS. He’ll have two tools to help him navigate through life!
