It is exciting to think that I might live another 50! My grandmother lived until she was 98 and lived on her own until she was 96. The only pill she took daily was a multi vitamin that her daughter insisted that she take. I am so glad to have those genes in my pool!
There are ladies in the Burbank Art Association still going strong, active and creative well into their eighties. One lady, who will turn 90 soon, sometimes seems to have more energy and drive than I have ever had. My mom is in her seventies and volunteers more than some people work.
All of these women inspire me, give me hope, and are beautiful examples of how to live as long as one is alive. I believe that my second half century could be even better than the first and the first has been pretty fantastic!
