We were guests at a birthday celebration this past weekend for our neighbor, Floreta who is now 90 years old. I think that is a pretty special occasion – I mean how many 90th birthday parties have you attended?
She is a very sweet lady and interesting to talk with.
I started thinking about how much the world has changed in her lifetime. When she was born in 1920, electricity was not in common use; not to mention automobiles, airplanes, and all those other newfangled things we take for granted. She has never owned a computer or sent an e-mail, much less a cell phone or I-Pod. And yet, she is one of the happiest, most content people I know. Kind of makes you stop and think, doesn’t it? Happy Birthday Floreta!
