Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live a hundred years? Surely that would be a great milestone in one’s life – though we should wish that we’re not bedridden by then but as healthy as an old person could ever get!
But while it would be amazing to reach 100 years old, it is even more incredible to have twins celebrate their 100th birthday together!
Mary and Mae Belle, best known on the web as “The Wallace Twins”, are identical twin sisters born in 1916 in Kentucky. The two had been teachers before retirement.
While both had been married to their childhood sweethearts and had gone on to travel to all the 50 US states and 8 countries, they are now living together in one house after both their husbands had passed away.
Amazingly, despite being 100 years old, the two are quite active! In fact, they still do their own cooking and cleaning in the house. They also exercise at least 30 minutes a day to keep strong and active.
Indeed, it would be wonderful to live a hundred years and still be as active as these sisters!
What’s better than living a healthy 100 years? Living it with your identical twin, of course.
