I remember living with my grandmother when I had summer work with my Band and at that time she was in her mid-80’s. When I woke up to get ready for work at 6am she would have already been in the garden to gather vegetables, weed, and water her flowers. Grandma would also have the house organized, breakfast and coffee ready, and of course a list of what she would like me to do around the place/town before the end of the day.
Grandma left us when she was 92, but she sure demonstrated what “purpose” meant to be productive and happy. I believe “purpose” is the primary reason she never had to leave her home and why she was so independent.
If we can find our own “purpose” and then help others to find their own I think we would be living in a pretty special place….thoughts?
