Oh, those blueberries!

Today, I met a spry old gentleman at the grocery deli counter. Waiting his turn, he said, “Got more time than money!” I let him in ahead of me, and he nodded his thanks. Eyes twinkling, he looked at me and boasted heartily, “Just turned 90. It’s the blueberries!” We both smiled wide and I exclaimed, “So that’s your secret!” He nodded and walked away, a spring in his step. Pass the blueberries!

A life of firsts

Inspire others
But first inspire yourself
Respect others
But first respect yourself
Love others
But first love yourself
No two ways about it!
