Retirement has been delightful. I recommend it to anyone that wants quality time to do fewer but more desirable things, even if it means less money to spend. I thank God for my experiences since an unexpected but much appreciated retirement. No I wasn’t fired. I quit. I had to quit. My first year of retirement was the busiest year of my life, never to be duplicated or forgotten, and forever to be cherished. Someday I may tell about it, but for now, it is a memory I will keep to myself.
I’ve shared many phases of my life before and after retirement, including years of caring for my late husband who passed away away in 2012 from Alzheimer’s. Life and loss travel together, and after loss, life goes on. I’ve been blessed and I’m grateful.
