Fountain of Youth

Most of you know by now my undying love for those over the age of 65. This week I had the sheer pleasure of taken care of two 91 yr olds and an impressive 101 yr old at the hospital! The secret to their long life….not antioxidants, green tea, soy, or even exercise, but LOVE!! Each one shared the common denominator of a family member taken care of them and none belonged to a nursing facility. Interesting and so profound.
I imagine if a study was conducted it would throughly support this theory….taken care of our own, although not possible for everyone, has everlasting impacts!
Go give and get your daily dose of LOVE today!
“This is my commandment that you love one another as I have loved you” {John 15:12}

This age group loves stuffing hankies into cardigans!
By the way, my 91 yr old swore vaseline was the secret to her great skin which truly was exquisite ! Too funny, .84 cents for that beauty product, people!!
