It Can Be Hard To Set Smart Goals

Did you set a big goal this New Years? You were going to get it done in 2018. How many times in the past have you set a huge goal such as to lose 50 pounds or exercise 5 days a week, only to fall off the wagon a few weeks (or usually days) later? Why did you fail? A...

Mind Over Matter!

Mind over matter!  I find myself clinging to that mantra a lot as a FireWife.  Especially with the history my firefighter husband and I endured.  The past can never truly be buried deep enough.  It always seems to nudge it's way through my thoughts as I go about my...

wonder as a firewifeStop right now and look at the wonders around you. Right this second you are surrounded by many wonders.

Hell, you are reading this from a website that is going across the world. That’s a wonder to me.

I wonder how some of his calls turn out so great, yet others in the same circumstances are tragic.

Do you have kids, furbabies and/or close family? Then I hope you wonder how you could be so lucky or so blessed to have those things driving you crazy in your life.

What is bringing you wonder today?
