As you all know for Teaser Tuesday I usually do one of two things: give you a peek at my current WIP or share some kind of inspiration.
Something I saw this weekend made me go for the latter.
The truth is, we all have people in our lives that keep us going in one way or another. For me, it's my sister who always reads my work and gives me feedback, my husband and son who allow me time to work on my crazy hobby (which I tend to try to fit in when they are either sleeping or busy), my Krit Group that shares their own writerly struggles, my family who thinks I can do anything I put my mind to....the list could go on and on but you get the point.
Do the people in your life know how appreciated they are and how much their small sacrifices mean to you?
The following clip from winner Phil Mickelson at the Masters moved me in so many ways. And yes, I cried. Is anyone shocked? I'm such a softie!!!
Not only did this make me really think about the own people in my life and the importance of family and friends, but it also moved me in other ways as well. This moment is one that is frozen in time, priceless and meaningful. It makes me want to write a character that can show these same struggles and triumphants. It's what moves us as people and remembering that when we write is equally as important.
Congrats to Phil on his 3rd Masters win. I, for one, was pulling for him on Saturday before I even realized he had all of this family stuff going on. When hubs explained to me on Sunday, well, it made me pull for him that much harder. I don't doubt for an instant that he was out to prove something. Well done, my man.
And looking good, might I add...much different than the last time I watched the masters.
Hope everyone is off to a great start this week...can't wait to see what Teaser Tuesday brings!
