Becky’s Nugget: “All Things Are Possible”

BLOG,Nuggets February 9, 2012 16:05

We were so excited to get this nugget of wisdom from Becky Coffield. Becky is from Arizona and  owns a mule, who she says can teach us a thing or two about life. (Confession: We are so out of touch with nature here in New York City, we had to look up what a mule is: an offspring of a horse and donkey!) Beyond being wise, Becky runs a small, independent publishing company specializing in Western Fiction and Nonfiction and sponsors the  “Cowboy Up Short Story Contest.”

Got a nugget of wisdom to share with the world? Well, time to be a little generous and share it here on PenTales. Answer these 5 questions or just shoot us your advice at


When you get to my age, you’ve had so many life lessons they become innumerable, but four stand out in my mind.

1. Never leave home without a sweater or jacket.

2. Never trust people who don’t allow pets in their house.

3. Mules teach patience and humility like no one else.

4. Never doubt it: ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Or, as Henry Ford so nicely put it: Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right!
