Memorial for Eric Russ

Eric and I were together for 17 years. I will miss him dearly.
 
Memorial for Eric Russ
Saturday, April 29th
10 am
Unity of The Blue Ridge, 2041 Old Fanning Bridge Rd, Mills River, NC 28759

There will be food afterwards, in particular, Eric’s favorite Underground Bakery Focaccia pizza (vegetarian except one kind has bacon) and other finger food.

Please let me know if you will attend — this will help us with planning.

Thank you.

      Yes, we will need finger food in addition to the pizza. Hopefully, we can do sign up sheets at Unity.

    Terri, we’re awfully sorry to hear of the loss of your love, Eric. Though my wife Judy didn’t know Eric that well, I knew him during his time at Unity and thought very highly of him.
    We would be honored to be able to attend the memorial. Thank you, Dick & Judy Allen

    Hi Terri, I will be coming in from Ontario Canada. There is so many times per day I reach to pick up the phone to give him a call. I was driving from Ocala Florida to Satellite beach last night and twice i wanted to pick up the phone. Miss him lots. It will be an honour to be there. Fred

    Terry,

    I will be there, along with my wife Lynn, and daughter Allie. We miss Eric. I miss his loving spirit on the other end of the phone. Of course, he was a mentor to me in business. Life is so brief. Bless you.

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
 
Political name-calling is similar—we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
 
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
 
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
 
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
 
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
 
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
 
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
 
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
 
Much love,
Terri
