Blogging Boomers Carnival #235

   For a special post-Thanksgiving edition of the best in Baby Boomer blogging, check out Midlife Crisis Queen. She offers some links to other blogs where Baby Boomers analyze the economy and what its effects are on our retirement plans, our long-term marriages, and our charitable donations.

     Other bloggers look at the other side of the equation. They count their blessings. They appreciate what they have instead of feeling disappointed at what they don't have, and they consider the beneficial health effects of feeling grateful every day. I especially recommend Katie Foster's post, Stop and Smell the Roses and Be Grateful, which features a short, inspiring look through the lens of a time-lapse photographer.

found your blog via JJ. I, too, will ck out those links....very interested in the topics!

Saw a great story on NBC news last night about older BB women moving in together to share expenses, have a nice home, enjoy the companionship (a la Golden Girls). I think it's a fine idea!

Sightings,
The video regarding being grateful was a life changer. I'm watching it over and over again.

Thanks for the link.
