On Being Old: with Acceptance and Gratitude

By: Mary Jo MacIntyre, Nadine Ann Shirley, Sandra (Sam) Studiner


About the Book

On Being Old (with Acceptance and Gratitude) is a true story of how three friends happened to get together after many years of total separation from each other. Mary Jo, Nadine, and Sam took up right where they left off, talking and laughing, questioning and filling each other in about their lives. They discussed the feelings that come with aging, the fears, and the physical changes. They communicated more honestly than in their younger days and covered topics that they had not in the past.

Read this heartwarming collection of personal stories, from three totally different people with totally different views on most subjects, and perhaps you will identify with one of the characters and find a path and companionship into yourself as they did.

I read it and enjoyed it. It was a great take on the big issues everyone deals with. It’s funny – there was a section where you thought of yourself as still adolescent at one point in your life, but when you worked for me you brought such mature leadership that spread throughout the program to others. I remember walking you to the elevator on 12/12/12 and can’t believe that was nine years ago.

Timing is everything! A much needed look into “The good old life.” With my mom’s outlook on life lately, she has made aging look unbearable. While her diminished mental capacities play into it, I didn’t realize how much I needed some positive motherly insight and guidance. Your three takes on the aging game helped more than you will know. Can’t tell you how much I needed to see joy and acceptance of this natural process and am grateful you all have kept mentally healthy to write this charming, sincere, insightful book. Thank You.
