Can any of you say you have never made a bad choice?

Can any of you say you have never made a bad choice?

I know I can’t. I’ve made plenty of bad choices. Stayed when I should have gone. Said yes when I should have said no. Rushed into something when I should have stopped to think it over. I’ve made plenty bad choices, but the queen of bad choices was my sister Donna. She was a girl who loved a party, and loved the wrong men. She chose to drink. She chose to smoke. And, she died far too young. Meghan’s sister Tracy is a lot like Donna. She loved a good time, loved Dominic, and was blind to the fact that he loved himself more than he loved her.

Now Tracy Briggs is back in Magnolia Grove, a single mom with a fifteen-month-old baby who has not spoken a single word. For the sake of her baby, Tracy wants to set things straight, get a fresh start, and change the type of choices she’s been making. But it’s not all that easy, she’s definitely going to need help. For the Briggs sisters it truly will be “The Summer of New Beginnings”

Can any of you say you have never made a bad choice?

Are you holding onto something when it’s time to let go?

It’s human nature; we all do it. We refuse to get rid of that too-small dress hanging in the back of the closet, we keep the diamond earring with no mate, and sometimes we cling to a memory of the past until it clouds our vision of the future. Meghan Briggs is no different. She loved her daddy with all her heart, and now that he’s gone she’s determined to hang onto the Snip ‘n Save Magazine because it’s the last little bit of him she has. Her mama and sister have tried to point out the foolishness of this, but Meghan refuses to listen. She’s determined to stick it out…well that is, until a stray pup comes into her life.

Me? Well I’ve been holding onto my favorite pair of sandals; they have loose threads in the back and the toe is scuffed, but still I keep them. Maybe I should admit they are long past their prime and get rid of them… make room in the closet for a new pair? Not a bad idea. I’ll buy myself a pair of sandals that are bright and sparkly and make this my Summer of New Beginnings.

To enter the Healing Hearts contest, comment below and tell me what you’ve been holding onto… is a memory that clouds your vision or something tangible like my sandals? And, what’s next? Will you keep it or let it go?
