No Enemies

Back Next

It seems that Ma's 104-year-old mother was paying another visit, and joined the old couple at their weekly church services. The preacher was greatly taken up in his message, and at one point started talking about the virtue of being on good terms with everyone.

"Is there any among you who does not have an enemy," he questioned the congregation.

Slowly Ma's mother rose to her feet. The preacher was at once captured by the old lady and asked,

"Sister how is it that you happen not to have any enemies?"

"Because," the old woman snapped, "I've outlived all those rascals."
