“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
©Jeanne E Webster
The age-old question has been bandied about lately and got me to wondering. I chewed on this for a while and came up with a few possibilities.
1. A preacher
2. Professional writer of inspirational topics for women
3. A chef
4. An astronomer
The thought process sifted through the diversified hats above and came out like so:
A professional writer of topics to inspire women—strong possibility here. I am older but can still think and write, have had much experience writing and exposure to some dynamics of becoming a successful writer, love to write, inner need to minister to women, comfortable with presenting the gospel to women of all ages. This hat is pretty close to what I would want to wear when I grow up.
A chef—I love to cook! I like to feel food, eat food, look at food, experiment with food, food is cool! I would make a good chef if I were younger. No longer have the stamina for schooling and training in the fine art of classical cooking. Most likely a no.
An astronomer—I would have loved to enter college and study for the wonder-filled topic of astronomy. Space intrigues me, draws me like a magnet, spins my thinking cap around and around, always points me toward home to heaven, but is too little too late for grasping the dynamics of this detailed topic. A definite no but only because I am too old and college is too expensive.
So sifting through the above choices, it appears being a professional writer is what I want to be when I grow up. Sounds good. Maybe I’ll get there in a few years.
How about you? When you grow up, what do you want to be? I’d really like to know. Really. So give it some thought and share with us here or write me solo on my email. Shalom.
