The oldest person in the world has passed away, at 115, and she had few points of wisdom to share. When asked she said her secret was "more education" although her own education finished with teaching school. Instead, she taught us by her own example:
- she stayed active. She was seen pushing others around in her wheelchair in her nursing home.
- she stayed with her family. Until 100 years old, she lived with a son, and had family surrounding her, keeping her connected and loved
- she overcame tragedy. Her husband, a farmer, died at a young age, and she kept loved ones around her to replace her loss
- she practiced moderation, echewing vices such as tobacco & wine. If you do imbibe, as I do, practice moderation.
Here's to your health, and may you live to as ripe an old age!
