She really didn't look too bad according to normal standards, but her face was a little puffy. A cosmetic surgeon speculated that she had received too many injections of fat in her quest to look young. Why would she do such a thing? Well, she is touring the country hawking a book about how to maintain a youthful appearance...so, she is probably under a lot of the normal pressures of traveling, late nights schmoozing, and being an old lady. What? Old lady? Yes! The poor thing is 64 years old! Old enough to be a great-grandma! But Hollywood demands that she always look her best -- no, much better than that. They demand that she look 20...forever! I have news for them -- she can't do it. Our bodies -- since the fall of man -- run down. You can push it off a bit, with makeup and hair dye, but eventually there comes an end to how much you can fool people.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30
Why can't we value age and wisdom? I think I will be more comfortable following the beauty secrets of a Betty White...look like a grandma, act like a grandma, and laugh a lot.
