Swim Lessons

An older woman teaching an infant how to swim

Peggy is 102 years old and has been teaching swim classes for over five decades and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon!

Peggy lives in Oregon and says this is not the route she expected her life to take. She was a stay-at-home mom and was originally studying to be a hairstylist when she was approached about the job at the Y.

She fell in love with the job and says she’ll keep doing it for as song as she can. She says, “I often said that I will keep teaching and swimming until they can wheel me in a wheelchair and dump me in the water.”

She says, “I’m inspired to get up in the mornings, get ready. And I still drive my car and come to the Y.”

We all have our life plans… and are often disappointed when they don’t pan out the way we planned. God also has a plan for your life…. His is better.
