Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

AARP

AARP Membership requests began hitting my mailbox way back in my 40’s and now that I am almost 52, I guess the time has come to consider joining.  I am reluctantly accepting the fact that I’m approaching the “S E N I O R” category – REALLY??!!  Hubby and I have been joking for years and betting on who would join first….I’d push the envelop away and say, “oh no I’m too young”, and he’d look at me side-eyed and smirk.

Offers of a Free Gift to join had oftentimes been tempting and there are definitely some great benefits including discounts at Ross Stores on Tuesdays!  Discounts on travel, food, entertainment, health, insurance, shopping, education and training and so much more should have been reason to sign up with a quickness, but I just couldn’t do it.  I had also loved the fact that they provide information on Long Term Care options, Employment Postings, even starting a new business, the benefits of being an AARP member far outweigh the small price to join.

I’ve finally made up my mind and submitted an online membership application, and then I entered the AARP Real People Model Search just for the heck of it.  I don’t expect to be chosen but it seemed like something fun to do as well as memorable to mark the occasion as I approach the wonderful world of “Senior Citizenship”.

The Java House Café in Middletown recently hosted two books signings for local authors.  The first one was on Saturday with Richelle N. Rodgers, author of Forever Growing A Journey of Trust.  This autobiography gives you insight into her life which is filled with joy and sadness as well as near death experiences by both she and her husband, but her strong faith and trust in God has given her more than the world has taken.

Richelle is Philadelphia native presently residing in Elkton, Maryland with her husband of 38 years and is a grandmother of triplets.  Her passion for empowering others to be the best they can be in their relationship with God is prevalent throughout the book.  As a Franchise Consultant in both the Museum and Insurance industries as well as an Independent Contractor for CCI, she has had the opportunity to travel outside of the United States including trips to Bosnia and Italy.  Richelle is currently a Lay Prayer Associate and an Eucharistic Minister and Lector at her church.

Richelle has dedicated her life in helping others and as a Vietnam Vet is currently working on a Women Veteran Leadership Awards Symposium to be held in DC this fall.

The book is also available as an eReader at both www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble and a schedule of book signings can be found at www.richellerodgers.com.

It took 3 years of prayer and the encouragement from family and friends for this book to become the first in what I believe will be a successful career of an Inspirational author.

 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.” – Proverbs 3:5
