Format: Kindle Edition

A beautifully written book which stays with us long after it’s been read. Sander inspires us with her wisdoms about aging with grace – the hardships and the beauty. She delves into what many women begin to question about things and feelings that change as we age and how we become from our experiences.

Each chapter is followed by some inspirational quotes that we can go back to whenever we may feel the need for some uplifting.

Wisdom and Aging


Today's thought


Brittle bones and silvered hair,

Display time’s imprints of life and wear.

Knowledge accrued, from life sublime,

Instilled wisdoms from remnants of time.

The heart’s handbag, complete with joy and scar,

Becomes a placeholder for love present and far.

Compassion still with us, tucked in our heart,

Memories we carry, some banished, some marred.

Does satisfaction of the past emanate without ruin,

Or sporting frown lines from hurtful wounds?

Roads we’ve travelled become etched in our mark,

How well we’ll be remembered, when our souls have gone dark.
