Frances, Age 78
Dear Ellen and Jane,
I discovered your 70 Candles blog only days ago and am happily working my way through all the postings, starting with December 2010.
My own 70 Candles event was eight years ago, when other factors were starting to change my life, apart from the big seven-o. Now, after devoting several years to caring for my late beloved husband, and having made it through the first couple of years of widowhood, I have been feeling utterly discombobulated to find myself at 78, wondering how I got here. I seem to be missing a few years, which gives a sense of urgency about making the most of what remains. So it’s a delight to find your blog with input from other women. Thank you for creating it!
All the best to you both!
