My grandmother is 99 years old. 

In fact, all women in my family have lived well into old age.

I have known two of my great grandmothers. My other grandmother was well into her eighties.

Her secret? It's a matter of just keeping on breathing. Keep on getting up. When asked how she's doing she'll say 'Oh, you know, a little bit of pain here, and a little bit there.'

She's lived through a world war, has raised four kids, almost drowned when sailing across the Atlantic with her family back in the 50s. She took me and my sister on multiple trips to museums and zoos. 

​I think she deserves her own painting, don't you?
