Paul’s grandmother, Kath Harney, recently celebrated her 100th birthday. You read correctly, a full century!
Kath and her late husband Pat had six children, and the latest count as Kath celebrated her birthday was 27 grandchildren, and 45 great-grandchildren!
The most wonderful part of this story, was the simple factor that Kath attributed to her long life; happiness. "Happiness is the trick, I've always been happy. I've never drank or smoked, and I've had a very good family and a very good husband," she said.
Such a wonderful sentiment from someone who has the life experience to back it up; a reminder to us all to strive for joy and happiness in each day.
Happy birthday Kath!
