Introduction:

Elderly people are so precious and enjoyable to have around. Here are the top five reasons that the elderly are so important in our lives.

Long Lives

The elderly have lived long lives. They are so important in our lives because of this. The longer that one has lived, the more of a life they have to share with others. The elderly have much to contribute to this world. Most already have contributed while others will soon be contributing their best as time goes by.

Even the elderly are still learning. It has been said that you learn something new every day, and that is just why even the elderly are still learning. They have much wisdom to share with the world, even if they have just learned it themselves.

Learning

It really does not matter what your age is. Everyone every day is learning. We learn from both the young and from the old. The young are so precious, and they often inspire us even in the simplest ways. They really have not experienced much yet in the way of living, but they sure can bring up things that we have never even thought of before. They can teach us all sorts of behaviors and help us to change our attitudes in our lives.

The elderly, however, are so important in our daily lives, because we can learn much from their actual experiences. They have lived long lives, and have experienced many things worth sharing with us that can help us to improve our daily lives. We can even learn things through the elderly that will help us to get along with others much easier, get over things more quickly, respect others, and even enjoy looking at things in a more positive manner.

Trials

The elderly are so important in our lives, because they have gone through many trials. The longer that anyone has lived, the more trials that they have gone through in their lives. It is hard to accept trials in our lives, but they do exist.

The elderly are more than willing to share their past experiences with us. They are actually happy to do this. The elderly have learned where they may have gone wrong in life along with things that they are very proud of the choices that they have made.

Spending time with the elderly is one of the best and most exciting things that you can do these days. They can help us with many aspects in our own lives. The elderly can even help us to avoid many trials in our lives through their many words of wisdom.

Sharing

Elderly people in our lives are so important, because they enjoy sharing with us. Elderly people sincerely enjoy sharing all sorts of things in their lives. As people age, sharing becomes more and more important to them. As you age, you realize that you have gone through numerous experiences of all kinds that are worthy of helping others to get through their experiences.

As the elderly share more and more, they enjoy it more and more. It is always a great feeling to know that your simple words can be helping others.

The elderly also have many items along with valuable treasures that they enjoy sharing. As they grow older, they no longer have the need for many things in their lives. They love having the opportunity of passing these precious things in their lives onto others and sharing their joy along with their stories.

Loving

The elderly people in our lives are so important to us, because they are very loving people. Elderly people are very loving, caring, and thankful people. As we age, we all learn to enjoy the better things in life. Better things, as in more important things and things that really matter.

Elderly people normally grow more loving and caring as they age. They grow more thankful of even the simplest things. Elderly grow to appreciate life much more than anything.

Elderly people are so precious and enjoyable. Many of the elderly are also quite funny. Look at the elderly people in your life, and listen to them. This will surely bring you a new healthy and positive look on life.

    We also grow from sacrificing to care for them at the end of their lives ... I help care for my 88 year old MIL who has dementia, and can definitely attest to this. It's so easy to just shut them away in a home, but we're trying hard to honor her wishes to stay in her home, even though it takes a lot of effort on our parts to do so. We should remember that they cared for us when we were helpless, and now it is our privilege to do the same for them. An excellent list! H5!
