Supporting Jack's dream was not always easy for Sadie. When Jack turned 60, he proposed that they sell everything and buy a cattle ranch in Central Oregon. Sadie had her doubts, but she agreed to it. They left Colorado and all of their family; the grand-babies and her ailing mother.
Now, barely four years later, they had 300 head of cattle, 200 acres of land, and were turning a profit. Jack was so pleased! "Was" is the key word now. Jack had dropped dead of a heart attack last Friday. Sadie was in shock, wondering what to do next. The kids were assuming that she would sell and return to Aspen, which did seem logical. Inside her heart, though, was a desire to keep the ranch and work it herself.
This wonderful and inspirational story describes one woman's decision to take risks and move forward when most are entering retirement. (150)
