#72:Life Lessons

Chances are I will learn something positive about aging every time I visit my readers at the retirement home.  But, having signed a confidentiality agreement,  I can't really talk about individuals.

Nevertheless,  it is probably acceptable to say that the most optimistic and cheerful person I have visited so far is also the one with the severest mobility and vision challenges.   "Alice's" enthusiasm and love of life is a tonic and  inspiration.

Unfortunately, she doesn't really need my services.  Her daughter keeps her well supplied with audio books.

But maybe I can just drop in on Alice for a chat--whenever my spirit needs a lift.  Every couple of days?
