Are your elderly parents surprisingly active for their age? Tell us all about!
By Wendie Blair
Do you have elderly parents that seem to get around more than you? Or for that matter, better than you? Maybe you're wondering how they do it...so are we!
I'm sure many of us at some point in time have seen someone who appears twice our age jogging or participating in an activity that we ourselves do not have the stamina for.
If you're like me, when you see this happening you think to yourself "I should be ashamed of myself". That's my first thought. My second thought brings a smile to my face. It's a delightful feeling to see elderly making such an effort to stay in shape and reap the benefits of shaving years off of their age.
It's a wonderful incentive to other elderly and to the younger generations.
If we could encourage more activity to more senior citizens then elderly independence could grow stronger and maybe have a domino effect to the younger generations.
If this reminds you of your parent(s) or someone elderly that you know, tell us about it. We would like to hear your story, and feel free to post pictures.
