The next picture is Vera, my 93-year-old mother-in-law, fondly referred to as Grandma. She was out for the afternoon getting wood with her son.
Like everyone else, I'm fascinated by the fact that Grandma has survived so much: She's lost her husband, her daughter and 2 grandsons. Yet, she carries on, facing each day with a smile. I asked her how she does it. Her replied surprised me. "Being old is no fun. No one should live past their time."
At first I thought her comment contradicted her philosophy toward life, then I realized what she meant by "time." I think she means past the fun part.
