Today’s word prompt “Value” got me to thinking what those of us in our twilight years consider something of “value!”

In doing research for this post, I have to say that Thomas Hardy – English Novelist (1840-1928) covers the word value quite well for those of us now in our mid-to-late seventies in the quote that follows:

“The value of old age depends upon the person who reaches it. To some men of early performance it is useless. To others, who are late to develop, it just enables them to finish the job.”

In my particular case, I would have to admit that, in all probability,  I fall in the latter group. Therefore being late to develop, it stands to reason that I am sticking around as my job here on earth is not finished yet.

time waits for no man

Until next time!
