What A Great Age You Are Grandmama


Today was my grandmothers 96th birthday. She and I have been out for a meal.
We had a bit of a laugh with her wheelchair and getting in and out of my car.
We dined out at a very nice Chinese restaurant in Bath and then took a tour around the park. We talked over old times and speculated on whether she would reach her hundredth birthday.
Later, as she was falling asleep in the chair, I realised that I was almost exactly half her age.

I still respect great age. I worked at a rest home when I was in school, and found people-no matter how dull, can live long enough to have at least one good story! Most have wisdom that is only learned through living.
