Why Grammy’s Pen?
Rabbi Ben Ezra
“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith “A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!”
The evidence surrounds me. I live among the statistics that demonstrate the extension of life for millions. There’s Flo who just turned 100, and Selma, Johnnie Mae, Sylvia, and Helen, ninety years, all. Flo celebrated her 100th birthday by entering the celebration sitting on a motorcycle. And they are not alone. There’s one ninety-one-year-old who lives on my floor. Not only does she briskly walk around the courtyard, but she also walks reams around me, a member of the Lazy Non-Walker’s Club. While ninety may not be the new seventy, for sure it’s not the old ninety.
So why not a website for “with it” seniors by a “with it senior? Here is where I share what keeps me and the rest of my peers living the life of promise as stated in what some would call “the good book,” aka The Bible. It’s a book for all times and for all stages of life. Grammy’s Pen thrives on the premise that the senior life can be like a juicy apple. And every day we are surprised how good it tastes once we bite in. In the words of Tim Hansel: “Don’t be bashful. Bite in. Life is ready and ripe NOW whenever you are.”
“Old people can still do something useful.”George H.W. Bush – 41st President of the U.S.A.
