I spoke to a man on the phone the other day. I have known him for years and he wanted me to know he was now 100 years old.
I asked him why he thought he had managed to live so long?..."I didn't die" was his quick response.."And do not stop moving, if you stop, you might not get started again."
He said he has cut the treadmill down to 8 miles a day and the stationary bike back to 6.."I am getting old, ya know"
This man taught me you can laugh at the things you cannot change. You can unconditionally love those you disagree with, and forgiveness is attainable.
He is an example of what a man, father and most importantly to me, what a grandfather should be....
