Yesterday I went to visit my Great Aunt who turned 98 years old. It’s incredible how she just keeps going. She takes care of her 60 something year old son who is disabled, she cooks, cleans, and is just remarkable for being 98 years old.
As we got there to cut her a cake for her birthday she begins taking out old china plates and funky looking cups. She brought out sandwiches she had made because she couldn’t believe we didn’t tell her we were coming so she could have made something for us to eat. We tried to explain to her we already ate, but she insisted on us eating the sandwiches. I was stuffed already because I made a vegetable pasta and ate before going to her house. My Mom and Aunt couldn’t turn her down and ate the sandwiches. LOL. 😀
Her apartment is filled with junk, literally, just junk from all types of magazines and paper work all over the place, so she goes to the back and comes out carrying a chair so that we all can fit at the table. She’s 98 and she’s carrying this chair like it’s nothing. Her legs sometimes hurt and she has to help her son out of bed to help change him and take him to the bathroom so it’s no wonder she has some aches and pains.
I don’t know if I want to live to be that old, but whatever age I do live to be, I hope I have the strength she has. Shit, I already have aches and pains. Hence my MRI I went to yesterday. HAHAHA.
Happy Birthday Titi Tommy.
