This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.

  1. I watched it last night and was in tears. And then, I had to smile when both he and Mary talked about how 1049 was their clue that Flo Jo was speaking to them. Mary said she almost daily encounters the #1049 in some manner, so her mom is always speaking to her. Such a poignant segment.
