But a few months ago (February 6th to be exact), I heard a still, small voice say, "turn off the radio, go sit in the rocker, and talk to me." For the first time I was drawn to say the Rosary. Where have you been all my life?!?!! Since February 6th I have not missed saying one Rosary.. I discovered a hidden pearl, and receive unbelievable graces. I don't know what happened.. but suddenly I love the Rosary. I am 54 years old!! So it's never too late! LOL

Yeah, I don't give up on it completely, because like you and INP point out there are all kinds of graces and even temporal blessings in doing it.  But the Dominican one is really hard for me to concentrate on.  Usually I need a Rosary book with a picture of the mystery to look at to even come close.  Maybe I have ADHD or something....

The Servite one I do better on, I think because the emotions of sorrow associated with it help me focus.

I think my problem was concentration too. The Divine Mercy chaplet was easier for me.. precisely because it was shorter and I could create my own "mysteries" as it were, which focused on the Passion. Of course, the DM chaplet is said on the Rosary, so while the number of prayers are the same, the prayer itself is shorter.

Also, I have a Sacred Heart chaplet that has fewer beads and shorter prayers, not even prayers - aspirations really. Until I fell in love with the Rosary, I used to say the Sacred Heart chaplet a lot.
