Young Ol' Lady

This is my 85 year old mother-in-law. She really is amazingly healthy. She could probably run circles around me! She's had quite a life and a very interesting childhood. Two of her brothers went off to fight for our country in WWII and one of them lost his life. You can still see the pain of that loss when she talks about him. She decided to go into nursing and spent most of her career in the cancer care unit at Swedish Hospital. Not a job I could do. I have to commend her for it. She is still full of spunk! I hope to have half that much energy when I get to be her age.
