Be The Miracle | Life Lessons

Regina Brett  wrote a column of the 45 Lessons Life Taught Me, the day before she turned 45.

She added five more lessons when she turned 50. My Life Lessons ended up e-mailed around the world. Then someone changed her age on one email to read: “Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old.” Another person attached a picture of lovely older woman older. No, that dear senior citizen isn’t me. It’s fashion designer Iris Apfel.
