Hahaha!! A little joke that made me giggle...

Toward the end of the church service, the minister asked, "How many of you
have forgiven your enemies?" About 80% held up their hands.

The minister spoke on forgiveness, prayed with his congregation and then repeated the question and all responded by raising their hands except one small, elderly lady. "Mrs. Jones? Are you not willing to forgive your enemies?" the minister asked.

"I don't have any", she replied, smiling sweetly.

"Mrs. Jones, that is indeed unusual. How old are you?"

"Ninety-eight" she replied. "Mrs. Jones, would you come down front and tell the congregation how a person can live for ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?"

The little lady tottered down the aisle, faced the congregation, smiled sweetly and said, "I outlived the beotches."

That SO sounds like something my grandmother would've said. God rest her soul. She didn't live to 98 though.

Thanks for the chuckle!
