Senior Moment. Embracing our senior years can be especially tricky for younger seniors who must decide whether to live either in denial or undeterred by their fading youth.  The senior years of our life have less to do with the number of candles on a cake or even our physique and more to do with the depth of our relationship with God.  Those who are becoming “young seniors” must decide whether to spend time foolishly in denial that they are now seniors or to live their life undeterred by a cultural attitude about aging.  The more that younger seniors live in denial, the more they shoot themselves (and fellow seniors who are even older) in the foot.   Seniors are People Too!
