Mom and Tag - Olivia NewportI spent three weeks with my mom this last summer, just the two of us in her house in Florida. She said a lot of things I was glad to hear—sometimes hilarious, sometimes thought-provoking, sometimes sentimental. The first one was,

 “I’m 85, and I intend to be 95.”


Generally she’s well in physical health and attitude. Why shouldn’t she live to be 95?

I was glad to hear Mom say this because it reflects both gratitude for the life she has lived and intentionality about her remaining years. I’ll let those lessons speak for themselves.
