A reporter was interviewing a 104-year-young woman. "And what do you
think is the best thing about 104?" the journalist asked.

"No peer pressure," she replied.

When I was in college, I worked in an after school daycare center with
a marvelous woman in her mid-seventies. One day she was complaining
about her age. "All my friends are old and crippled," she remarked.
"They're either crippled in their legs or crippled in their minds."

I know that growing older is not easy, at any age. Columnist Dave
Barry talked about it when he turned 40. "If I don't warm up before
throwing a football," he said, "I have to wait approximately until the
next presidential administration before I attempt to do this again."

But even with its aches and pains and a variety of other problems,
aging does have an upside. Sister Mary Gemma Brunke has so beautifully

"It is the old apple trees that are decked with the loveliest
blossoms. It is the ancient redwoods that rise to majestic heights. It
is the old violins that produce the richest tones. It is the aged wine
that tastes the sweetest. It is ancient coins, stamps and furniture
that people seek. It is the old friends that are loved the best. Thank
God for the blessings of age and the wisdom, patience and maturity
that go with it. Old is wonderful!"

"Beautiful people are acts of nature," it has been said, "but
beautiful old people are works of art."

I hope someday to be a work of art.

You may have tangible wealth untold;

Richer than I you can never be --
I had a mother who read to me.

Video Imagery --Michael's Video Production Business

Dear Michael,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the beautiful video you made for me! It was so special to see both of my parents in tears as they watched their children grow up in pictures before their eyes! I loved the way you made Estania's part set aside from the rest--that was the part that really got them! The music was beautiful. My mom kept blubbering, "What song is that?" I don't know how you did such a beautiful job with the video in such a short time. I really appreciate your doing it so quickly. You have a wonderful gift, and I thank God that you are using it to create such sentimental memories. I hope that I can find my niche like that in an area that I love. Your video gave us one of our most lasting Christmas memories! I hope yours was filled with moments to be treasured forever!
