(MIAMI.CBSLOCAL) — PEMBROKE PINES – Beulah Murdoch celebrated 100 years of life surrounded by family and friends in her Pembroke Pines home.

It’s was a celebration, crafted with love which marked an unexpected milestone.

“We are still flabbergasted because it’s just…I would say a miracle ,” said her daughter Juliette Murdoch.

A miracle, said her daughter, not just because so few people reach this age but also because about a year ago, Beulah was comatose with a mysterious illness doctors couldn’t diagnose. All they could give her was two weeks to live.
