Since you asked... I've observed Aunt Mary for all of those attributes, and beleive they help. However, I would hope also that the fact that Aunt Mary was a TEACHER is part of her long life, too! If you'd ask Aunt Mary about her days as a teacher at McGuffy School in Dayton, she has replied that "yes... I had what you'd call a 'desk job'"! She admitted that at the time of her teaching days, she didn't want everyone to know she was a teacher (must not have been cool for single women in those days...), so that was her reply.
I've enjoyed sharing all of my funny "teacher stories" with Aunt Mary and we would laugh and laugh and laugh about the hilarious things kids do! I've enjoyed being a teacher and would like to think that has kept me "young"!
Happy New Year and a long life to everyone!
