This Is The First Time I’ve Ever Been Old, And It Just Sort Of Crept Up On Me.

There Were Signs – Mary Maxwell

If you were ever old – or even if are just planning on it – you can probably relate to Mary Maxwell.

Mary has, for years, been gently poking fun at life as a senior.

Her series of videos, Laughing With Mary, are funny, witty, and hit close to home.

Here’s just a very short one about seniors who still insist on going to the gym:

In 2009, Mary was invited to give an invocation for Home Instead senior care. But she grabs hold of the stage with the timing of a professional comedian as she continues her prayer about aging – and then wraps up with a poignant acknowledgement of what seniors need from their caregivers and others.

That video went viral, with over 12,000,000 views to date.

I invite you to take just a few minutes to hear Mary’s take on growing old.

And laugh.

Because . . . we all need a laugh today.

Peace
