Happy journey

I always see the old man walking slowly in our neighbourhood. Today while I am back home from work, I see the old man sit on the bench, suddenly I am thinking one of the quotes from student guide.
The quote state that serve your uncles as if you are serving your parents. So, I come near him and greet him. He is so happy and our conversation lasted more than twenty minutes. This is the wonderful experience and I am going to make it the habit from now on.
He tell me that he is now 80 over years old and living in his son's house. Every day he needs to walk to maintain activeness. He tell me about his life and his family.
After twenty minutes, I tell him that I have to go home. He smilingly telling me to have the good rest. I feel like he talk to me as if I am his son.
My friends, it is so good to talk to the old people, the joy is beyond my imagination. Please try it if you have not done this before.
Yes, this is part of my happy journey in life.

I've always been fond of old people, and now that I'm getting old myself I'm even fonder of them. A lifetime's worth of experience is nothing to sneer at.
