Exciting news indeed. In third grade I came in second in the spelling bee. In high school speech contests I once got a third place, but nothing better. In 1976 I was named Teacher of the Year by an alternative, unsanctioned high school newspaper.
A couple years ago I won a Bronze Medal for Talent and later I was a finalist in the Sarton Writing Contest.
Today I actually won. Best in my category as they would say at horse races and county fairs. Everything changes.
My husband, a major player in Never Too Late, says, “You don’t lose until you quit trying.” Good statement!
