Have you ever thought, “I’ve got to get my spending under control?”
That’s just what I was thinking on a Saturday morning while going over bills. Somehow I’m always surprised at how all those little purchases add up. I’m 60. You’d think I would have figured this out by now.

Grit is a human attribute that women over 60 have earned and can use to have a great life in their later years
Just recently, my second husband passed from this life, and one of my friends asked, “Would you have married again if you knew he would be gone in 6 years?” That is a hard question to answer.
