My friend spent a day with me.
She had these words of wisdom for all those like us, who were growing older, trying to make sense of our lives.
She said as we grow older there are four things we need :
1. Physical fitness and good health
2. Financial independence
3. The ability to perform household chores effectively
4. The ability to resist doling out unsolicited advice to children
The last one is the most difficult . And being welcome in their lives solely depends on it.
