Deep Thoughts

Dear 2023, You are precious as you alone hold all of our lasts.

Dear 2023, You are precious as you alone hold all of our lasts.

Our last meal together Our last shared joke Our last kiss His last smile just for me The last touch of his face The last loving words from his lips to my ears Our last argument Our last knowing glance His magical touch His quiet yet deafening goodbye My shattered heart Yes, you hold all of our Lasts.
Dear 2023, I hate you with all my heart!

Dear 2023, I hate you with all my heart!

You took my Sterling physically and shattered my world without a warning You turned my world upside down and sent me into mourning You stole the man of my dreams who made every one of them come true You left me brokenhearted with the question “what will I do?” You stole the future plans we made of the things we’d do and see You robbed me of the life I… Read More »Dear 2023, I hate you with all my heart!

How Are You Doing?

When asked how I was doing, I did my TRG thing and responded honestly. “Broken, truly just shattered, and not even sure how I will recover. I never thought for a second we would not have Thanksgiving, my birthday, Christmas, or New Year’s 2023 with Dana. I know I serve a God that never fails, but I’m running on Faith alone because I can’t see my way out of this… Read More »How Are You Doing?

The Things People Say

Losing my husband 30 days ago is something from which I will never recover. I will painfully learn to live again because letting him or myself down is not an option. I will learn to live with a broken heart, adventures unshared, and dreams that will never come to fruition, but I don’t think I’ll ever recover! I know people want to help, but don’t know how to help or… Read More »The Things People Say

Cats in the Kitchen??? Deeper Thoughts by Tracie Borrower

CAT LOVERS please listen! Cat lover, your cat walks on your floor. I know, you could eat off of your floor, you say. Not sure when that became “brag worthy,” ‘cause I know you certainly can eat off of mine…..my cats do all the time! I appreciate how they clean up all the yummies that me and my Grands leave in our haste….They appreciate it too! But seriously, can I… Read More »Cats in the Kitchen???

Potty Training Your MIND

Potty Training Your MIND

Any parent who has potty-trained a child knows these four things…. 1. Not My Circus A baby becomes aware of a mess in their diaper early on, with no idea how it got there. But they do know one thing…..they don’t like it, and want it off of them…..STAT!! 2. Who’s Monkeys are These? At some point, a toddler will realize the mess and the smell are coming from them! They aren’t… Read More »Potty Training Your MIND

If your GIFT has strings attached….Stop giving it away….Those strings are holding YOU back!

When you give to someone, be very clear on your reasoning. Be up front on your expectations. Be aware of your intentions……remember, it’s a gift! What is your connection with your gift? We are not discussing business deals and loans here; those are completely different and not the subject of this message. We are talking about when we give of our time, talent, or money as a gift. Your relationship… Read More »If your GIFT has strings attached….Stop giving it away….Those strings are holding YOU back!

Fear and Who’s on First?

So I was thinking after I posted my last blog on the baseball analogy, about how in life we never really strike out… I didn’t mention the TEAM. Those who support you. Those whom you support. Your Tribe. But there’s more to your team than those that readily come to mind. Your team consists of those who don’t even know they support you, and those you have no idea you… Read More »Fear and Who’s on First?

What if I Fail?

What if you don’t?? What if you swing and miss and swing and miss and swing and WHAM… Grand Slam??? The first 2 swings can look like failure to the untrained eye, and many would give up then. But to those who know better…they might look like great lessons learned on ways NOT to do it. So, step up to the plate. Taking from Wayne Gretzky’s famous quote – you… Read More »What if I Fail?
