    These are all good and solid choices, some I’ve seen before. Kudos to them all. It would be nice to recognize bloggers living with a disability who are championing causes to help others struggling on a similar journey. Just a thought.

    Thank you so much for adding me to this inspiring list of women over 60. Ageism is in the rise sadly, and it’s refreshing to see an article that celebrates more mature ladies.
