Quotes from a 105-year-old woman I interviewed today

Q: How are you?

A: "I'm still alive!"

Q: How can a person live to 105?

A: "You just go on living and tell yourself, 'I'll never say I can't do it.'"

Q: Will the 106th birthday party be even bigger?

A: "I live by the day. I don't plan anything ahead, because I'm here but maybe the Lord will take me away all of a sudden. So I don't plan for any other birthday. But I am happy that I can do what I do now. If I can continue for a while, I'm thankful."

Here's the whole story, but if you ask me, you just read everything you need to know.
