Ok, this baby boomer now has a serious goal, live long life and keep going strong. Of course this is rather unusual so yes, I am glad to live what ever life God grants me and live it to the fullest.
I just read this story about a woman who is 107 years old in Newark, NJ. She is from Georgia, just like my mom. So, of course before I posted this I spoke to my 82 year old mom and shared the highlights. We all need encouraging.
I also hope that her senior housing complex has a full time social worker. They have been missing on a full time basis in Newark Housing complexes for a while now. Caregiving families need the advice and support when trying to keep their loved one OUT OF a nursing home for as long as they can.
This woman does have good support with her grandchildren. And it is a good reminder to us all to talk with our families to share in the support needed in caregiving. Of course I read it wishing I had had children to help me in providing support for my mom. But God has been good and when I have strength and a great homemaker life can rock.
Read this encouraging story about a 107 year old woman living in Newark, NJ. Tell me what you think. I was encouraged. Also, encourage families to sacrifice some time to visit when they can. Remember baby boomers our time is coming. Ha!
