33. Over The Hill (Week 42)


Do not regret growing older.  It is a privilege denied to many.”  ~ Unknown ~


My mother-in-law Laura will be 93 in August and only the number of her age would make me think “over the hill” – she certainly never has acted it.  Laura has always had a youthful attitude.  In her adult years, many of her friends have been younger.  As a young lady, she played baseball in the “League of her Own” era.  She went on to outlive three husbands and raise three boys while she played in many bowling leagues – eventually gaining recognition in the Bowlers Hall of Fame.  Still cooking her own meals and living on her own, if there is a baseball game on, you will find Laura sitting in front of her 70-inch screen tv enjoying the game and playing poker on her ipad.    In my mind’s eye, she will be forever young.
