These old hands

We recently saw the movie “Mirror Mirror”.  The moral of the story is that the punishment for being an evil woman is to grow old.  We watched as Julia Robert’s hand changed from youthful to looking a lot like ours. Oh the horror!!   If a woman is measured only by her beauty and youth we are wasting a lot of resources.  My grandmother taught us all until she was 95, and my mother at 85 still is a wealth of knowledge.  I don’t remember youthful hands.

Hands like these contribute a lot in this world. Growing old is a reward, not a punishment, and we are proud to be part of the growing movement.  These hands will keep picking and planting.
