How To Endure

Getting used to the failings of old age is hard.  But there are certain compensations, such as the loyalty  of a lifelong partner.  When she decides you haven’t been eating enough eggs and makes you an omelet for lunch, that’s a peak for the day.  And then there are friends, in who’s day you are a light.  They brighten things too.

This mutual dependence willed by the Creator (why, for instance, this aptitude for conversation, for mutual joys, for an appreciated joke, for  happiness in a familiar face?) is a sign that we’ve got what none of the other animals have to this degree.  I say, enjoy it.
