Wisdom

97Jack  Thank you for your wisdom!

My dear friend, Mary, was my role model. When asked for her secret to such a long and happy life (we buried her on her 91st birthday) she replied: “Two things; you have to have a reason to get up each morning, even if it is to water the plants and read the paper. Also, never stop being curious about the world. Learn something new!”

Mary read three newspapers each day, watched Charlie Rose each evening and communicated with her friends via e-mail.

As we travel through the uncertainty of growing older, there is every reason to believe we can continue to grow in wisdom - and joy.
