Seniors teach us how


Monday, 10/25/10
Even at 102, my Grandmother is confident she will live a long life. Recently, I bought her a brand new (although off-brand) sewing machine. She asked me, “Where is the warranty?” I replied, “What do you care Grandma… It has a 25-year warranty!” My Grandma replied, “How do I know the company will be in business that long?”



Lessons in life presented by a 90 year old!
 
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are 
sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to 
disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying 
alone.

But don't worry; God never blinks.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in 
life, don't take no for an answer.

does.

    I love senior humor. These are tough old birds, because they’ve had to be, but they have a lot to teach us. There are some really cute websites on senior humor.
