50+ Fearless Feminine Power

Living Your Life Agelessly

Some people are old at 18 and young at 90……time is a concept that humans created. ~Yoko Ono   I remember my Mother telling me that older women were treated as if they were invisible. My Grandmother said the same thing to me in regards to how the medical profession treated the elderly. She would do everything in her power to charm her Doctors and Nurses and from what I saw-they adored her.

As each nurse came into the room she lavished her with compliments. My Grandmother told each and every one of them how beautiful they were and they all loved it.
