    Attitude is everything

    My 93 year old aunt who travels all over England by herself on the bus for the fun of it, had a nasty case of the flu.
    She told my sister this morning "I really thought I was going to die so decided if I was, it was going to be in my own bed so I went to bed at 7:30pm. I woke up the next morning at 10:30am and figured if I hadn't died, I might as well get up.
    Don't you just love it?

    That's great! My grandma is gone now but lived to be 93. When she was in her early nineties and I asked her how she was doing
    she'd say "oh I have good days and bad". Never complained.
    Forever in my heart...

    That is a great attitude. Why complain - it won't change anything, and who's going to want to listen to complaints anyway? I don't complain( except to my doctors and my partner in crime ) for those very reasons. I know I'll never make it to 93 tho. At the rate I'm going, I'll be lucky to see 70!

    Ecclesiastes 3:1
    The clock of life is wound but once and no man has the power
    To know just when the hands will stop - on what day, or what hour.
    Now is the only time you have, so live it with a will -
    Don't wait until tomorrow - the hands may then be still.

    The choir performed in church today, and had percussionists, one of whom was playing Mary Green's tambourine. Mary Green was a lady who lived to be 105 I think, and when she was in her nineties, told me during a visit - "When the Good Lord calls me, I'm going." End of subject!
