Dear AgingParents Family:
We are fortunate to have a mom to wish good things to on this day. Mikol’s Mom, Alice, is still doing very well at age 90. She inspires us all in the way she takes good care of herself. She goes to the pool for a workout every other day, takes her medications exactly as prescribed, watches her diet, keeps her weight in line and stays engaged with those around her. She goes on the internet every day, and goes to movies by herself. She takes classes as the university extension every school year. She has a friend who sends her jokes and she passes the good ones on to us. She knows how to laugh, no matter what happens. We hope to follow her example of aging well.
And here’s a story to share about Grandma Pearl, in our own Marin County, California. She’s doing something positive this Mother’s Day too.Jewish Grandmother to Spread Message of Worry and Happiness this Mother’s Day at Bay Area Hospital
