The journey of aging is different for each of us, but no matter our path, the joys and challenges of getting older give us all a wonderful opportunity to keep growing emotionally and spiritually. In this wise and profound book, Janet Schaeffler draws on her own experiences of aging and the insights of many elders to help us all deal with twelve increasingly important needs: to live a life of meaning and purpose; to joyfully pursue love and relationships; to ask and explore questions; to learn and grow and laugh; to navigate change and transition; to cope with losses; to be grateful; to forgive and be forgiven; to give; for spiritual integration; to let go and simplify; and to prepare for dying and death. The journey of aging is a gift for each eldering person, says Schaeffler. Filled with gentle wisdom and practical suggestions, Let This Be the Time will help us make the most of this wonderful gift as we learn to live and love more fully in our eldering years.
