I love walking! It’s so simple and yet today I realised how much I take this ability for granted. I chatted on the phone to my oldest friend who is 99 years old and still active. She told me how, despite the rain and with the help of a wheeler, she had walked to the shops and back. It was her first day out in the fresh air since Christmas and she had a great time.
We grumble about having to walk. We grumble about the rain. We grumble about the weekly shopping. But perhaps we should grumble a little less and enjoy these moments a little more – and maybe we’ll be singing and dancing – or at least walking, in the rain at 99!
