Happy 104th Birthday, Ola!

I stopped to visit my husband’s Aunt Ola a few days before her 104th birthday.

Ola, dressed in a bright red pants and sweater, was sitting on the bench outside her independent-living apartment.

She greeted me with a twinkle in her eye and a  big smile and immediately started asking me for reports on my family.

When I finally had a chance to ask her how she is doing, she pointed to the walker next to her chair.  “I hope to go back to a cane soon,” she said.

Ola explained that she is going to work with a physical therapist. “I’m still doing three loops around all of the apartments and three times up and down the long hall every day with my walker,” she said. “I’ll never give up. Once you stop exercising, it’s all over.”

Good luck, Ola! You have inspired me. My dog Ginger and I have been walking two miles every morning, but we’re going to start doing three miles immediately.

–Joy
