Quite often, we are reminded that our elders are like priceless treasures who hold the secrets to life. With years of experience and knowledge, we turn to them and rely on their counsel, and jokingly but sincerely ask, “What’s the secret to a long life?”.
Well, the lone, most obvious, and true answer to that question is our creator Himself. As faith-filled Catholics, this answer should be enough, but as the mere humans that we are, a list or clear roadmap would surely be beneficial to help us along. You’d be pleased to know that this roadmap does exist, and it lies in the lives of precious gems such as my grandmother, Eugenia Blizzard.
‘Grandma’, who turned 100 on March 27, 2021, celebrated this milestone at Holy Mass on Palm Sunday at the Lady of All Nations RC Church, D’Abadie where she is a parishioner. Her life stands as a testimony of faith, family, and fulfilment.
