Maggie Smith of Kemper County celebrated her 104th birthday Tuesday at the Mississippi Care Center in DeKalb.
Friends and family joined Smith for a small birthday party, complete with cake and balloons.
Smith attributes her long lifetime simply to the grace of God.
"God is good. He has blessed me with everything," said Smith. "He has been good to me. Couldn't have had nobody better than God."
Smith was born in 1908. Theodore Roosevelt was president when she was born. There have been 19 presidential administrations in her lifetime.
