Celebrating Life


When I was younger, I often heard about elders experiencing a slow decline in health.  Well, it seems that health does not follow a predictable smooth graph downward.  When I was 30, my younger doctor already started blaming "aging" for some health issues I was having.  Say what?  But then, I started feeling better again AND I changed doctors!  But is that right that you hit your health peak in your 20s and there is no real plateau before slipping downward?

Granny Has 'Do Not Resuscitate' Tattooed on Chest: Wise or Wacky?

The nephew is a very loving little man. Besides the excited hugs he delivers when he sees us, he will say "I love you" whenever he feels like it, no particular context needed. Or I'll get a big, sloppy kiss in the middle of some explanation of why he's not wanting to eat right now.  And sometimes while playing, he kisses my hand and then goes on doing whatever.
