CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — Thanksgiving 2020 almost definitely has millions of Americans wondering what exactly they have to be thankful for.

But a 90-year-old Downers Grove author has just finished her latest book, and she believes there is always something to appreciate.

“Positive thinking is at the root of what makes life a lot better,” Edith Vosefski tells WBBM Newsradio.

Her newly written autobiography is called “The Nine Lives of Curious Edith.” The title comes from something her doctor told her: that she was just like a cat.

“He says, ‘You’re so curious. Whenever you get sick, you do the research on it, you come in and tell me what’s wrong with you. And you’re right.’”

Every day, Vosefski said, she’s thankful for another day and for the beauty in life.

She wrote “The Nine Lives of Curious Edith,” typing with one finger after her stroke.

“All it takes it a little grit,” she said.
