Youth Has No Age


"To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent - that is to triumph over old age."
-- Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Despite the fact that I took aerobic classes twice a week, English course every Tuesday and Thursday, helping out my dad with his waterpark, and attend a fellowship every Thursday (just started though!) I'm so deeply grateful that I still have time to give back to the community.

Earlier today me and a bunch of friends went to a nursing house. There were a short sermon, some singing together, and giving parcels. Old people are fascinating. I live with my grandmother. She's 87 years old and still rocking! She's healthy and every now and then she's still making me my favorite foods.



Me and three other friends spent a good one and a half hour wrapping 100 parcels consist of apples, crackers, and shredded meat the day before. I did feel like a complete grandmother after standing and bending for so long without a break.






I hope we can appreciate and respect our elders in every way we can.

  9. So true you are only as young as you feel and it's so awesome that you got to be a blessing to the elderly, their advice is worth listening to and heeding, because they know more about life than us and are more knowledgeable about life.
