Growing older brings continual changes such as health concerns, safety at home, aging in place, moving, adjusting, loss and grief. Voices From My Heart is a series of essays about tender moments with seniors validating what they are going through and offering suggestions and solutions for concerns that they face. Emotion accompanies every decision and event that happens in our lives. I have shared my words with many of my patients, watched them relax and then begin to heal emotionally if not physically. Continuing to find joy, growing where you are planted, reaching out to others, smiling through the losses, finding new purposes, and living with purpose to the end are all talked about in this book. Because I cannot look every senior in the eye, and sit by the side of each one and hold their hand, it is my hope that this book will touch the lives of many more than I will ever see face to face.

Author Rhenda Wilson loves being with her seasoned citizen friends. While these friends say that she brings light and joy into their lives, she insists that they inspire her while in their presence and whenever she thinks of them. She has used this inspiration to craft a reading and discussion experience that comforts and gives hope. Rhenda’s several years of working as a Registered Nurse in assisted living, skilled nursing, home health and independent living gave her personal and intimate contact with countless seasoned citizens. Her sincere “caring” and contagious love captivated many hearts, even some who were long-curmudgeoned by life’s torments.
