PAXTON -- Arcelia Watson, of Our Town, is in her 80's and is showing people you're never too old to reach your dreams, even if it's one book at a time. Last year, her first book was published. Much of it was about her teaching career.

With Love is all about dealing with struggles life throws at you and turning them into something positive. It was her dream to write this, and at 84, it was published. It only took her a few months to write. In it, she talks about dealing with alcoholism, death and Alzheimer's.

A lot of it also covers her 48-years teaching. Watson says seeing her students reach their dreams made her go for her own.

The memoir is 43 chapters. She originally wrote it to just give to her family as a legacy. But people in town, and from all over, wanted a copy. Watson will have a book signing, Saturday.
