Happy Birthday, Mom!

Tracey Tracey's Blog

I managed to sneak in a quick trip to beautiful San Diego this week. It was my mother’s 88th birthday and I sure didn’t want to miss celebrating with her. My brother and I took her to a wonderful little restaurant for lunch and we all enjoy walking down memory lane together. Our dear mother raised the two of us …

Birthday Musings

Tracey Tracey's Blog

Having just celebrated another birthday, for which I am always grateful, I find myself looking backwards but more importantly, looking forward. What exactly do I want from my next year on the planet?

I’ve been keeping tabs on a difficult, but very hopeful situation involving one of my friend’s grandchildren, a delightful five year old sprite who has cancer. Isn’t that just the kind of information that drops your stomach to the floor? Yet, I understand little Maddie is a real trouper. My friend had this to say about her remarkable granddaughter: “Maddie …

Please read my column this week, “The Second Half: Wisdom in the Spotlight,” and then come back here for a few additional thoughts!

Good people

Tracey Tracey's Blog

This week’s column (‘The Second Half’) is about how to handle inconsiderate people. Sadly, this is a topic I am often asked about. Yep, there are days when it seems like the good guys are in the minority.  Inconsideration seems to be running rampant throughout every corner of our culture. Complete strangers barrel down the highway in violation of the law …
