Just what I needed

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - Your letters -

Jo Sea­gar’s ar­ti­cle “Age is an at­ti­tude” in the Fe­bru­ary edi­tion gave me a real boost on a day when I cer­tainly needed it. Be­ing the pri­mary live-in carer for my 86-year-old fa­ther who has liver can­cer, and my in­tel­lec­tu­ally and phys­i­cally dis­abled brother, there are days when I truly feel my “al­most 60” years of age, and I of­ten fear that my best days are be­hind me. I can’t help but won­der on th­ese days if, when cir­cum­stances per­mit, I will have the nerve or verve to do the things I want to do. So Jo’s ar­ti­cle was in­spi­ra­tional for me – it re­in­forced that with the right at­ti­tude, there are many more won­der­ful days to come. M. MICHEL
