A Precious Life!


An Uncertain Time and A Precious Life!

In a time of uncertainty during this Easter holiday, I take a moment to reflect on this precious life that recently crossed my path.

A life of service and sacrifice, a life that carries the weight of world on his/her back.

A life of purpose that speaks of death, life and rebirth, a precious life that is truly a miracle here on earth and simply takes up the slack.


I always wonder what happened to find what looks like to be an empty turtle’s shell.

When I paused, received wisdom and observed closer, I was enlightened that all the essential parts that make up this beautiful being will now go on…live on in others.

A remarkable cycle of life we can see and experience in this natural world.

I am in awe that provision was made, and nourishment passed on to now dwell.


May I continue to stay open and humble, serve love and kindness with all that cross my path, and shine the light of hope.

That is my prayer, this is my heart, to cherish these moments, that I strive and truly want to see this life through the eyes of a telescope.

I am extremely grateful for all those that are serving on the front lines, for all those that have the amazing calling to carry the weight of the world on their back, for all the wildlife rehabilitation centers that are saving, rescuing, rehabbing and releasing our wildlife friends back to the natural world, for all the animal shelters and veterinarians that are supporting our furry friends and for all those that are sacrificing and providing creative ways for all of us to stay healthy, stay safe and stay at home.


My heart and prayers are also with those that have lost loved ones. All life is precious!

KAPOW! Tracie
