Well first off I am fifty-something person too. Actually I am 52. I am a widow with 2 children still at home. I have 3 adult children. I will have 6 grandchildren in June. I am currently taking a hiatus from work as I have left the nursing field after 32 years. I left it on a good note but just can’t compete with the younger ones and after watching my husband slowly pass away from cancer I just decided a change was needed. We live in the foothills near the Blue Ridge Parkway here in Virginia.
