Reading John Leland’s Happiness is a Choice You Make has me feeling Mom’s presence. Based on his year-long series of New York Times‘ articles on a year among the oldest of NYC’s old, the stories John shares hit close to home, ditto the lessons he was surprised to learn by being with them.
Resiliency, kindness, generosity.
Making the most of the moment.
Full-throttle living, in their own way.
Wish everyone could read the articles, which I enjoyed immensely, savor the book & perhaps feel the nodding presence of a beloved older!
