Letter from the Editor: Decades of Grace

I’ve talked to a lot of women this month about aging. Most of my friends, like me, are passing milestone birthdays. But, for the most part, I believe we’re getting better, and I know most of us are happier than we were 20 years ago. While our skin isn’t as smooth as it once was and our hair color may be enhanced, we are much more at peace with ourselves and much less easily rattled by life’s ups and downs. Throughout my life, I’ve found role models in women I admire, watching the way they move through life, creating success without losing the grace that is so much a part of being a woman. And hopefully, I’ve taken some of that grace for my own. One of those women is my boss lady, the owner of Strand Media Group, Delores Blount. For the past 13 years, actually nearly 14, I’ve watched her handle her business with sharp acumen, but she does it without being harsh or overbearing. And personally, I’ve seen her go through some very serious life events that would have caused me to throw a huge pity party. But even these events didn’t rattle Delores for too long. She puts on her always-fashionable-clothes, adds lipstick and a smile, and keeps doing what she loves to do every day. To me, she epitomizes this month’s theme of “Decades of Grace.” If you know Delores, you know exactly what I’m saying. So thank you Delores, for leading the way, for showing us how to age gracefully and beautifully.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
