Visiting elderly family members , realisation creeps in that old age is a reality and an inevitable challenge to be faced. Now as i am in my early 50s , i can understand that life is different in younger years wherein though one is physically fit and growing there is a zest ,an enthusiasim and hope for brighter days ahead . But in old age what can one hope for ? The mind is active, can reason ,can think ,can dream but the physical body has weakened,aged , movements are restricted ,various ailments ,aches and pain trouble.
Perhaps the only comfort lies in knowing that one is loved and well cared for .
Love the elderly and love your children .
