Gay and I met a doctor, at a twins conference in the '90s, who was doing a study on how the sun affects aging twins. He offered us plastic surgery, and we finally decided that even though we never thought of having face-lifts, it might be a fun experience for us together. We certainly enjoyed the results, but beauty to me as an older woman is about the inside person; happiness and contentment shine through the wrinkles.
We did the surgery because of the study. We're not particularly vain people. What we look like is not a big thing to us. The only way I desire to present myself to the world is as real. That's the basis of my counseling work: "Find who God made you to be and live it to the fullest!" It's got nothing to do with what's on the outside. What matters to me is how kind I am and how well I listen to people's hearts.
