Oh this is interesting. This line got my attention. "We laud the active, productive elder for “not looking her age.” It's so true. I don't know how many times I've talked about how great my Mom looks for being in her 90s. This article talks how we think about aging may be a trap. It seems then that we go from my trap to another. I don't want that to be my way but I also hope I can look as good as my Mother if I'm lucky enough to grow old. We may need an attitude adjustment - again. What do you think? Is this always our destiny to value how we look over other things like maybe how we feel? I would love to see your comments below.

Today I am borrowing from two sources that captivated me this week.
