Grandma celebrates 107th birthday, says reason for her longevity is ‘I do what Bible tells me’

A South Carolina woman, who has witnessed some of the most significant events in history, recently celebrated her 107th birthday.

While looking back on her journey spanning over a century, she revealed the secret to her long life.

Adell Julie Thompson was born on October 10, 1915, in the Orangeburg County town of Santee, South Carolina. It was the same town where she spent her childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and ultimately, her old age.
Growing up, Julie said she saw monumental changes taking effect around her, many of which are imprinted on her mind and heart.

A Birthday Parade
To celebrate her 107th birthday, friends and family organized a birthday parade in Julie’s honor. It was a milestone that the elderly lady never thought she would achieve, but one whose importance wasn’t lost on her. She expressed:
“I had no dream of being 107 years. But the Lord spared me, and I try to do the right thing, I guess so people don’t talk about you.”
