What is Your Dream?
I’m not young anymore. I’m a grandmother now and finally hit the big Six-O. It totally shocked me when I hit fifty, but as I cruised by this new one a few days ago, I didn’t have time to notice. The last ten years my life has changed so much. In my forties I worked part-time with my husband in our business, and in the balance of my time, I sold items on EBay.
Then, God sent me in a different direction, and I began to write. Within two years my first book was published, with fourteen more since. Just when I thought my life had evened out, I made yet another change by opening a small publishing company—and my small press is in negotiations with a movie production company. At sixty-years-old, I’m busier than I’ve been since raising my kids, and loving it!
I’ve learned that you’re never too old to start something new, to live out a dream, or to take some kind of adventure. Now I’m looking ahead ten years and wondering what God will have for me in my seventies! It might be something more in the publishing world, or traveling the country with my hubby on research trips to Old West towns, or maybe something I’ve not yet dreamed, but I’m wide open and excited to jump into my future, whatever it might hold.
