10 More Years

Today I asked my father-in-law, who is 94, what he thinks when he wakes up in the morning? Do you think that this could be your last day?

Without missing a beat he said, “No, I am going to live 10 more years. I think, what am I going to do today? How am I going to get it done? Who is going to help me? What do I need to get it done?”

This man lives on a 40 acre farm and oversees his horse boarding stable. This past week he built a new barb wire fence, with help. He drives the skid loader, tinkers in his shop and is constantly brain storming about his next project.

Ten more years…he just might make it. Longevity seems to be a Hertzler trait!
