    Suzy, I couldn’t have said it better myself! You hit every point about the joys of aging. My husband & I were recently chatting about all of those Greatest Generation folks that surrounded us when we were first married back in 1983. The hallmark of those wonderful people was HOW THEY AGED…graciously AND gratefully. That was not lost on the 26 & 24 year old newlyweds who adored going to house parties with them after Sunday night church. We have spent a quite a bit of discussion time on the finer
    points of living life well past 50. It takes time, effort, thought, consideration, dedication all bathed in love. SO worth it!! Thanks for this wonderfully insightful post. Be blessed and be a blessing!

      Rochelle,
      So sweet of you! I’m so glad you liked the post. Wow! I loved hearing about the ministry those older couples had in your lives. Their sweet investment in you two paid off and I know you guys are loving and sharing with young couples now in much the same way. Thanks for setting a good example for the rest of us. Hugs to you and thank you for taking the time to read Empty Nest Blessed and leave a comment! xoxo Suzy

    Getting older is liberating though our culture can make you feel otherwise. You were spot on with your commentary and this post. At least the TV station found you! we know that you’re more than just a blogger on aging.

      Nylse,
      Hahahaha! Thank you! I just had never thought of myself in that light, I guess. It was pretty funny! I’m so glad you liked the post. You are doing amazing things at this stage of life, so your compliment means so much to me! xoxo Suzy

    Well spoken in your post and your reply. Why can’t we support each other? Aren’t there enough people in this world who see us as no longer having relevance? My resolution this year is not for me but for all women who struggle in life and to speak to one woman each day and let them know “I see you and you got this!” I’m still trying to figure out my next stage and my purpose. It’s not easy. Next step: Journal. Perhaps, it will become clear. Blessings

      Charlotte,
      Thanks so much for your comment! Yes, I do think journaling helps. (It helped me WAY more than I expected it to!) I hope you’ll do a personal inventory and see what you can do to encourage and bless others on their journey – so glad you have a passion for that! Thanks so much for reading and leaving me a comment! xoxo Suzy

    Hi Suzy!
    I guess to those young reporters, Empty Nest=Aging!!????????
    Thanks for this post. Very helpful reminders for me as I still struggle to adjust to our empty nest and find that new sense of purpose.
    I appreciate you!

      Sweet Betsie,
      Thanks so much for your comment. It’s a challenge for all of us to adjust. You are such a special lady and I know the Lord has big plans to use you in these years! You are a blessing to me! (And I’m SURE I’m not the only one who feels that way!) xoxo Suzy

    I loved how you mentioned that you’ll get the chance to manage and value your relationships as you grow older. My mother is getting older and I want to tell her some things that she can look forward to as she becomes elderly. I’ll be sure to tell her that she can focus on the relationships she loves.
