Something Sweet To Remember

I helped a little old lady at Walmart the other day, she was so sweet, she told me she was turning 99 years old on May 22nd,  I asked her what kept her living all these years and she said this to me . . .

Make the best of everything; think the best of everybody; hope the best for yourself and never look back, just keep looking forward . . . how true:O)



  1. I can learn something from her wise words...so true.


  2. Sweet words of wisdom! Thanks so much for sharing that with us! ~Lili

  3. I always loved that Mary Engelbreit pic..."Don't look back!"
    Love that peaceful song. Hope you don't get tired of me saying that. :-)
    xo, Cheryl

  4. very true! and laughter! You gotta have laughter, too! And your favorite word - FAITH!

    Take care, Sandy. Thanks for your inspiration!

  5. What a wonderful outlook on life! When my mom turned 80 I asked her what one piece of advice would she like to pass on. She said, "Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't do something."

  6. Hi Sandy,

    What sweet and wonderful words from the special lady. She sounds like a very wise woman. Hope you have a great day.♥

  7. How lovely for you to meet such a sweet lady! Sometimes people get bitter and crotchety in their old age. It's probably somewhat justified because their bones are aching and their lonely. But it makes it extra special when you meet an elderly person who is loving and sweet and you just know that any wisdom they can share with you is something you should listen closely to. I'm new to your blog - what an uplifting space you've created!

  8. Hi Sandy ~

    I love this post. What a wonderful gift that sweet woman gave you...and now it is a sweet gift you give us. Have a great day.

    Smiles ~ Ramona

  9. What wonderful words of wisdom! We would be wise to listen to our elders:)
