Theirs are the unforgettable stories gleaned from seventy, eighty, ninety, and even one hundred years of living. They come from the retired schoolteacher across the street, the World War II veteran who lives around the corner, the elderly couple who walk past your home every evening. Like magnificent trees, these remarkable souls have weathered and withstood decades of blustery storms, hard knocks, and pesky disease to bless our lives with their wisdom. Each has gained a sense of peace, gratitude, and acceptance of the things they have learned in this life — and now pass to the next generation. This is the story of private battles, quiet victories, and deeply felt emotions to be shared and enjoyed by readers of all ages.
I would recommend this book for a gift for anybody. It is also great as a present. It has many good stories and pieces of advice for any situation!
This book has 'hard-won' wisdom from those in society that might be overlooked. I enjoyed the short stories and then summary of each elderly author on the right-hand of the page often with pictures! We can never learn or appreciate enough those who have lived life and have much to share!
