I loved this topic. It certainly makes me think how lucky I am to still have my health. We are all growing older and if we can do it with a smile and lots of humour so much the better.I know only too well that is not always possible but you have to bounce back. That is the secret to a long life,and when I talk to my friends, most of whom are 80+. The oldest gentleman being 94, I see how they have lived their lives mostly with happiness and think that they were all young once, but growing older has it's advantages in that you are much more positive and even the most timid of you will do things you never dreamed you were capable of. So grow old or older gracefully or in my case disgracefully. ha ha.
