What are you thankful for? My Oma was 98, in November. She still lives on her own, walks most days and is happy to be alive. She has some issues with her short term memory and a few physical problems, but is in amazing shape for someone her age. She was always an active grandmother. Someone who would be playing in the forts you built together, doing things with you that you liked. One thing I loved about her when I was a kid was, when you went for family dinners, there were the adults at one end of the table and kids at the other. If your mom had put things on your plate that you did not want to eat, Oma would eat them for you when they were not looking. Therefore, you got your dessert. I digress. The one thing that always leaves an impression on me, when I get home from visiting my Oma, is her thankful heart. Yes, she can be miserable, but usually I get the nice version. She often tells me that she is happy living. She is thankful to be able to live in her home. Thankful to be able to watch the birds from her patio door. The simple things. To me, her having a thankful heart, has kept her living a long life. Sure there are other factors, but her attitude has contributed to her longevity, in some way. We are living in a time where we can choose to complain about all the changes and things that we are missing OR we can be thankful for what we have been given.
