Florrie: The secret of life is not to take it personally. I live each day to the fullest, one day at a time. At 85 years old with my husband in a care home for two and a half years, I do water exercise at the Natatorium five days a week, visit my husband, visit with my family - we will have seven great-grandchildren by next January.
I am writing a new poetry book right now. That will make 18 books I have written, all on Amazon.
I go to church every Sunday and pray for peace in this troubled world. And I thank God for the peace in my life.

    Indie Skreet: Hi Florrie, I just wanted to say thank you once again as your inspiration paid off :). You moved me to writing, 'She Was Young Once Too', which I posted yesterday on a different site. I hadn't expected many reads due to the subject, so I was surprised to see quite a few. I have posted on Fanstory, now and as you helped me write this, thought you might be interested to take a look sometime. Best Indie
