Lifetime warranties have taken on a whole new meaning to me as I age.
I am old enough to know that there are no real warranties on anything in life. Everything is relative. Now more and more I find myself taking into account the expected lifetime of things I purchase.
Will that washing machine be the LAST washing machine I ever buy? How many years of use will I actually get out of that new leather sofa? Could I make the one I have last?
As my expiration date gets closer and closer I realize that I actually need less of the material accessories in my life and more of the intangibles; friendships, love, spirituality. Developing new friendships as you age is one of the most rewarding endeavors you can have.
Friendship Centers are full of people wanting new friends. Come join us and discover what you may be missing!
