Long Overdue Newsletter: September 2021

Updated: Oct 1, 2021

Siblings Jim Borchers, Kim Jockl, and Melody Smith celebrating the release of their Long Overdue book titled "Safe Landing." The three created this hardcover edition for their family first and are now working on a separate version to be released publicly.


Quote of the Month

“You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold,
but you learn to dance with the limp."

- Anne Lamott

Homecoming & The Grand Reveal

I hesitated using the Anne Lamott quote above. It talks about death, and losing someone, and broken hearts.

This month's newsletter is supposed to be the complete opposite emotion. We're sharing a story of triumph and celebration.

So, right when I was about to find something more upbeat, I looked at the cover again of Safe Landing. And there's Bill and Corrinne Borchers, dancing together, Corrinne's leg up in the air.

I looked at the quote again.
