It's Taken Years to Get This Old :  A Lighthearted Look at the Senior Moments

   
Author: Karen O'Connor 

Speaker and humorist Karen O’Connor (Gettin’ Old Ain’t for Wimps, more than 245,000 copies sold) takes a lighthearted look at the perils of growing older. In this engaging collection of short stories, Karen shares what she and her fellow senior citizens have experienced that make the golden years an enjoyable time of laughter with a touch of humorous chagrin. These stories, that include ordering a Coke and fries at the bank drive-thru to having to admit their ages to get senior discounts, reveal that…

  • timeless beauty begins with a good heart
  • shaking things up is not just for the young
  • lost and found becomes a way of life after 50
  • love happens at all ages
  • laughter is contagious at every age

With inspirational reflections and lively prayers, this entertaining collection of anecdotes will tickle readers’ funny bones and remind them how great life is.

Review:   

"Humorist Karen O'Connor has done it again with her latest look at the optimistic side of getting older. In It's Taken Years to Get This Old, a collection of sensational senior stories, O'Connor proves that with accruing years come more humor, more wisdom, more flexibility, more appreciation, and just more old-fashioned fun. Each vignette shines like a gem with flashes of hilarity, insight, and spiritual truth. Those fortunate enough to read O'Connor's wit and wisdom will no doubt declare, 'While it's taken years to get this old, I wonder what I was waiting for? This is the best time of my life!' And this is the best book to accompany it.

"I highly recommend anything O'Connor pens. This book is no exception."
Lynn D. Morrissey, author of Love Letters to God: Deeper Intimacy through Written Prayer, AWSA/CLASS speaker, soloist, and journal facilitator
