Giving Thanks for Growing Older

As we get older, simple things like tying our shoes become challenging and that quick memory we took for granted when we were younger suddenly evades us. It is easy to get caught up in what we have lost, but let’s not forget about all that we have now, and what we have to look forward to in the future.

Below are some of the things many seniors are thankful for:

  • Watching our children grow up. As parents, we spent many sleepless nights worrying about our children, laughing with them, crying with them, and celebrating their achievements and accomplishments. If your children are now all grown up, and perhaps you are a grandparent, catch up on sleep and think about how fortunate you are.
  • Gaining wisdom with age. Having attained a more seasoned age, many people have gained wisdom from life’s experiences, including becoming more patient with others, being more tolerant in uncomfortable situations, and being appreciative of each day and moment we live. It is rarely an easy path, but if we are learning at each step along the way, it can be a wonderful and productive journey.
  • Perfecting our relationship with our spouse. No one knows us better and no one loves us more than our spouse, partner, or significant other. With regular effort on both sides, as we grow older, the relationship deepens and continues to bring us happiness.

As a senior citizen, there are moments and memories that make our life meaningful. We accumulate these experiences over the years and appreciate them along the way. This Thanksgiving, take time to reflect on all you have and all you are thankful for. We at the Farr Law Firm are thankful for you, our clients, and hope that you have a happy and healthy holiday!

P.S. Remember, as you are taking the time to reflect, the greatest peace of mind comes with planning for your future and for your loved ones. If you or a loved one is nearing the need for long-term care or already receiving long-term care or if you have not done Long-Term Care Planning, Estate Planning or Incapacity Planning (or had your Planning documents reviewed in the past several years), please call The Fairfax and Fredericksburg Long-Term Care Planning Law Firm of Evan H.
