"If you're a singer, you lose your voice. A baseball player loses his arm. A writer gets more knowledge, and if he's good, the older he gets, the better he writes." --Mickey Spillane

Tricia’s Thoughts:
Have you ever considered how blessed we are to be in our chosen profession? Writers get to keep writing long past what many consider retirement age. God reminds me of this often. Especially on those days when I have to run to the store for milk, take two sons opposite directions for basketball games, and help my daughter with her math homework. (Okay, actually her dad helps her with her math because I’ve forgotten how to do base five. But I’m good at editing her reports!)

Since I’m in my 30s, I could possibly have up to fifty more years to write. Fifty years! There’s no use getting stressed over one day that doesn’t meet my expectations. God knows what each day, each year holds. Think about this the next time your day doesn’t go as planned.

Happy Writing!

What an excellent reminder. I'm only in my 30's, so I have plenty of time left. :)
