Happy Fall to all of our readers. The crisp air, football games, bands and pumpkin patches along with Halloween makes this season a favorite of mine. It also brings up memories of the start of the school year. Even though my son is a grown adult with children of his own, I still feel myself looking at school ads and feeling that rush that all moms know so well. I even have strong memories from my school days.

In the month of May we celebrate Older Americans Month via the Administration on Aging at the federal level and Older Michiganians Day with the State of Michigan. The United Nations has also created the International Day of Older Persons on October 1st annually to “increase awareness of the impact of having an aging population. We want people in society to be able to grow old with dignity.”

Time plays tricks on us! It seems like it was yesterday when we learned to drive, attended our prom and graduated from high school. Now many of us are taking photos of our grandchildren experiencing these life moments. There comes a time when we look in the mirror sideways and say: “What the heck happened?” As Diane Sawyer once stated: “Inside every older person is a very surprised young person!” The good news is that we can get revenge on Father Time by Aging Well.
