Living healthy and happy life is anyone’s dream. However, most of the people are fail to achieve both health and happiness just because of the failure to achieve their dreams. This is mostly popular among senior citizens because most of the seniors are not healthy when they reach over 50 of the age.

As a senior citizen, she spends an active lifestyle which can be the secret of her healthy life. However, few days ago she had to spend few days in hospital due to a minor stroke. But, she also managed to vote for the presidential election which she never missed from 1954.

In her own words,
“I’m living the life now that I’ve always wanted to live – to be healthy enough to be active. First part of my life was raising children, supporting my husband in the ministry and now it’s all about me. I’ve decided to be selfish about my body; this is the only one I’ll ever have so I better take care of it’
