May 16, 2013 - Laughing After 70 ©
by Shirley W. Mitchell, Life Is Precious™ - Fabulous after Fifty™
I’ve written a book FABULOUS AFTER 50, Finding Fulfillment for Tomorrow and SENSATIONAL AFTER 60, Loving Life all over again. Those years for me were lived laughing, loving life and rejoicing. My next book being published this year, SAVVY, SAINTLY, SEXY AFTER 70, has put me in a frame of mind to enjoy comedy; so this article I will poke fun at aging!
I met Martha Bolton, the year 2,000 at a women’s Christian conference! She gave me her new book DIDN’T MY SKIN USED TO FIT? I looked in the mirror this morning after my shower, while drying my skin, and said, “didn’t my skin used to fit?”
When I put my makeup on I thought of Phyllis Diller’s quote, “I’ve got so many liver spots I should come with a side of onions.”
Sitting down to my computer to write this article, I say with Judith Viorst Author of SUDDENLY SIXTY:
“If only French fried potatoes helped me remember. If only sometimes they help me forget. If only one morning I’d leap out of bed feeling ready and willing to welcome old age. But not yet. Not yet. Not yet. But not quite yet.
“And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” ABRAHAM LINCOLN
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 KJV
Those of us entering our retirement years are taking the opportunity to indulge in something that brings us joy! We are rekindling long-held passions and finding new ones.
