“When I am 100 (crossed out, with 89 written in its place) I am going to be dead and barryed. And when I am only bones my family will barry me and they will miss me a lot and they will cry and be really sad.” On the back of the paper, he drew a picture of himself buried with a tombstone above him. Haha!
It’s kind of sad to me that my son can’t imagine himself living to be 100. Maybe it’s just sad because I can’t imagine myself at 100, either, and I want more for my kids. This book is interesting as it explores what makes people live so long and what kind of meaning their lives have at that advanced age. Obviously, everyone’s experiences are completely different. But the two trends that I’ve noticed are activity and service. I’d love to make it to 100, to live a life of service and activity like our wonderful President Hinckley. I’ve got to get moving!! If I’m gonna shoot for 100, though, I think I’m going to need surgery on my legs before then. I don’t think they’ll hold up that long. :)
