Lesson From the Danish Grandmother

I stop to visit the 70 year old grandmother from Denmark who visits her family down the road. Years ago, she inspired me with her 3 mile a day walking routine. She insists that the walking has kept her as fit and lively as she is. 

I’ve tried to walk like she does. 

“Are you walking today?” she asks as the rain drizzles around her. 

“Not when it’s this rainy out,” I say. 

“You know,” she says, “we have a saying in Denmark: It’s not the weather; it’s the clothing.”
