She still lives on her own, plays piano and has a dog named Buddy. Bethea says she's hoping to have at least a few more birthdays.

"I thank God that I have knowledge enough to know at 103 years old I still can think right and I feel right,” she said. “I don't have a pain. Nothing hurts."

Bethea says she has four grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren that she is very thankful for.
