If I had to guess though, as to how Orene has become the 90 year old that she is today, my guess would be that aging gracefully is mostly due to being such a kind spirit to those around her, and that kindness shines through in how she treats people, and that keeps her appearing ageless.
I’ve also heard that the trick to aging gracefully, is to ENJOY the aging process! Sounds simple enough right?
Not always so, especially women who are typically harder on themselves about their aging faces and bodies than men. I’m one of those who is guilty of this and so hard on myself about the wrinkles popping up and slowing metabolism!! In the years I’ve known Orene since marrying into Scott’s family, I honestly can’t remember a time when Orene has “complained” about getting older.
So maybe there’s a lesson here – we should all just enjoy the ride of each day that we wake up and let that joy shine through in our faces and quit hanging onto the negative aspects of aging. Put a twinkle in your wrinkles!!
