I really don't feel old enough to have a granddaughter who is now 16, but the facts don't lie. This past weekend I traveled to the Kansas City area to partake in my granddaughter, Caroline's, sweet 16 celebration.
Not only was there a surprise party for her, I also attended a high school football game to watch Caroline cheer, and the soccer game her brother Spencer played in.
While in the area I was able to have lunch with my 93 year old aunt (thank God I'm part of her gene pool) and visit my 89 year old former mother in law. Both of these women are an inspiration, their minds are as sharp as ever, they may have slowed a bit but are not letting the years get them down.
