Really Kind of Amazing

I helped this old gal walk up a small hill at baseball today while her daughter watched, holding her infant and wrangling a toddler.

It was the right thing to do. 

Except...

This old gal tells me - "Don't ever get old."

Maybe she was embarrassed she needed help...
Maybe she really hated her aging body...

I looked at her and said, "We are the lucky ones who get to grow old."

I tell people this even when they hate having a birthday.
