Grow Old With Me . . . The Best is Yet to Be

DOWN HOME with Granny B

OK so this is what I'd like to know. Why does it seem that every woman my age is so depressed about growing older?  What is wrong with wrinkles, grey hair and a soft tummy?  Frankly I think all this nonsense about dying your hair, getting a face lift and a tummy tuck is totally missing the point.  Growing old is wonderful.  Why not embrace grandma hood?  Wrinkles, grey hair and soft tummies are beautiful if seen through the eyes of love.

My grandson Liam thinks I'm wonderful just the way I am.

My sweetheart thinks I'm still attractive. . .
"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness, For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."
