On Turning 70
By Barbarahughes on November 02, 2013
I turn 70 today. Yesterday, 70 sounded a little oldish. Not old, but old-ish. I knew all about 70 being the new 50, but I didn't feel it. Today, however, I am proud to be 70. I am in good health, I have a wonderful family : great husband, fabulous sons and two amazing granfchildren. I have meaningful work. I just published my book, Enfolded in Silence/A Story in Art of Healing from Sexual Trauma in Childhood. Life is good. I am grateful. And I still feel spunky. Go, Me. I will postpone even being old-ish.
