Scavenger Hunt - Something Adorned in a Hat #2

This lady was a visitor at our church today. She is 96 years old. She's been going to a church down the street for over 60 years, but she doesn't get there often because she has to go with her daughter who goes to a smaller church. She said, when she comes to St. Luke's it's like she's been to church! Apparently she does not shy away from the Hispanic influence and salsa beat of the music.

She also told me she doesn't like to have her picture taken anymore because she's always surprised at how old she is! When I asked her if I could could take her picture she said, "I didn't shave this morning" but smiled right away.

I told her I was glad to know that people in their 90's still know how to smile. She said she's still pretty happy and finds things to smile about all the time. She's in a Corn Cob band and invited me to a concert. Said she plays the funnel! God bless her.

When I'm an old woman, I won't need to wear purple if I have a hat and a cane like these.

Merry ME

If we have the same elegance as this lady when we reach that age we'll have done alright.
