How do you view the aging process? Is it tinged with anxiety and regret? Or do you see it as an adventure, a time to find meaning, and a ripening? Or, is it a little of both? Gift of Years, Joan Chittister’s best-selling book, offers you the chance to look at this time of maturation with fresh eyes, with joy for what has been and optimism for what is to come.
