MINSK, Belarus - A woman believed to be the oldest in the world celebrated
her 116th birthday Wednesday in the former Soviet republic of Belarus.

"I'll drink to my own health with pleasure," said Hanna Barysevich, a former
farm worker who lives in a house outside the Belarusian capital Minsk.
"I'm tired of living already, but God still hasn't collected me," she said
with a smile.
Barysevich was born on May 5, 1888, in the village of Buda, 37 miles east of
Minsk, according to her passport. Her parents were poor, landless peasants.
"From my early childhood I didn't know anything but physical labor," said
Barysevich, who never learned to read or write. She worked in a kolkhoz, or
collective farm, until age 95, then moved to the house she shares with her
78-year-old daughter Nina.
Barysevich lived through the Bolshevik Revolution, two world wars and the
collapse of the Soviet Union. The worst period for her was the reign of
dictator Josef Stalin: Her husband Ippolit was declared an "enemy of the
people" for allegedly harming the collective farm, arrested and taken to
Siberia. He was never heard from again.
She raised her three children on her own, including throughout World War II,
when she used to take her family to the woods outside the village to hide
from the Nazis.
"A lot of men courted me but I preferred to live on my own," she said.
Today, Barysevich moves with difficulty but unaided. She complains of
occasional headaches and worsening vision "but nothing else bothers me."
She attributes her longevity to genes: Her paternal grandmother was 113 when
she died. As to diet, Barysevich prefers simple village food: homemade
sausages, pork fat, milk and bread.
Daughter Nina said her mother has a good appetite, a tough character and
very strong nerves.
"Throughout my long life, I understood that it isn't worth it to get upset
and take everything too close to the heart," Barysevich said.
For her birthday, she hoped for a raise in her monthly pension, equal to
about $50, and a chance to go to a Catholic church for confession.
Last month, the Guinness Book of Records recognized a 114-year-old Puerto
Rican as the world's oldest living woman. Barysevich said she'd never
thought of applying for the distinction.

Вывод: Больше надо работать и быть бедным.

Действительно, интересная история!
Я думаю, что секрет успеха в том, что эта бабуля ничего не берёт в голову, вернее не принимает близко к сердцу…В общем, я надеюсь, вы понимаете, о чём это я, собственно!
А что касается деревенской еды и голода, так это не проблема. Кто хочет, бегом на ферму, немножко маслица, сальца и молочка и работать!
Слава бабушке беларусочке!
P.s. странно, как эта бабуля держалась и не принимала близко к сердцу всё, что происходило с ней и её близкими во времена Советского Союза и фашистской оккупации?
