Inspired by the 70Candles! book

Sandy, Age 71

Upon reaching 70, I thought that was the end of my world. People refer to us “seniors.” I’ve also heard the word “elderly” used in the newspaper to describe anyone over 60!! Unbearable and wrong. We are still youthful in our looks and thinking, ripe with life and work experiences and certainly filled with wisdom. The number 70 filled me with dread.

After reading the 70Candles! book, I felt a renewed sense of energy. I loved how these women were beginning new lives and taking chances. It gave me hope for the future, that there are still things to accomplish in life no matter your age. I recommend this book to anyone who thinks aging is an end, and not a beginning, to new life experiences.

    I like to think of being in the 70’s as being in the “youth” of my old age!
