Everybody who enjoys a long life will ultimately retire one day from work and it is incumbent on us all to plan towards a befitting retirement and old age era.
While we are still young, we can all dress up and go where we like but a day will come when others will dress us up and take us where we don’t want to go.
In the past, a parent nurtures and brings up a kid with the full realization that the child will in the future return the favor by taking care of the aged parent. But today times have changed and as a person makes his or her bed so shall the person lie on it.
Every wise parent will not want to overburden the child when the chips are down as the journey is made towards the sunset of earthly sojourn.
It therefore pays to make hay while the sun shines. Elderly people who enjoy their retirement era in today’s world are usually the ones that undertake decisive planning in youthful days.
And for those who have been oblivious of this truism today is still time to do the needful as we all journey towards the sunset of life.
