Getting Old Aint for Sissies
Thats what my granddad used to say. I remember listening to his stories about when he was in the army, how he survived a plane crash, when he would to farm with a team of horses and had to use an out house in 20 below weather growing up. I am sure a lot of us have grandparents that lived like this or maybe even parents that have amazing stories about how it used to be. When you take time to listen to the older generation it really opens your mind to how things have rapidly changed for us in our lives. Its important to have a healthy balance of simple times and the now. For example I am really glad we have indoor plumbing and the internet but its still good to have a garden and grow your own fresh vegetables.
What are some stories your grandparents have told you?
