Leave every­thing in God’s hands. This is the se­cret to longevi­ty ac­cord­ing to Eu­ge­nia Bliz­zard who cel­e­brates her 101st birth­day to­day, March 27th, 2022.

Bliz­zard was the first per­son reg­is­tered to the Na­tion­al Cen­te­nar­i­ans Pro­gramme (NCP) fol­low­ing its re­launch on De­cem­ber 13th, 2021.

Her daugh­ter Flo­rence Bliz­zard, reg­is­tered her moth­er for the NCP stat­ing that she saw it fit­ting as the el­der Bliz­zard had paid her dues to the coun­try

On be­half of the Min­istry of So­cial De­vel­op­ment and Fam­i­ly Ser­vices, Di­rec­tor of the Di­vi­sion of Age­ing, Dr Hy­acinth Blake vis­it­ed the cen­te­nar­i­an and pre­sent­ed Bliz­zard with a Cer­tifi­cate of Ho­n­our and Achieve­ment.

Bliz­zard al­so re­ceived a cake spon­sored by the Kiss Bak­ing Com­pa­ny and a ham­per for achiev­ing the mile­stone.

Dr Blake told the fam­i­ly that it was in­deed a plea­sure to ho­n­our Bliz­zard as liv­ing to and be­yond 100 is an im­pres­sive mile­stone. Dr Blake was al­so sur­prised to learn that Flo­rence Bliz­zard was Sen­a­tor Don­na Cox’s for­mer his­to­ry teacher

The for­mer clerk al­so pro­vid­ed ad­vice to the younger gen­er­a­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the moth­er of sev­en, grand­moth­er to sev­en, and great-grand­moth­er to one, if the younger gen­er­a­tion wants to live a long and pros­per­ous life, they should pray and trust in God, fur­ther not­ing that God an­swers prayer
