I may just plan a picnic in the house this weekend and we can pretend we are enjoying the beach. I just won't look out!
It is Friday and I have 10 working days left. I am asked if I am excited or anxious and to be honest, neither. One day at a time. I think I learned that a long time ago that I do best when taking one day at a time. When one of my friends retired, her husband told her to set one goal each day and as soon as he came in the door each night, he asked her if she met her goal. That is not a plan that would work well with me but I do have some projects in mind. There are at least two of my kids getting married in this calendar year so that will be something to look forward to and I will plan some traveling. The question is if I will commit to something part time or volunteer or just take a break from any commitments. Suggestions welcome but not necessarily followed.
It will be a new page and maybe time to do that book I want to do. It is time to find me again and take time to smell the roses. I am recommiting my life in faith and will be devoting consistent devotional time.
My life has been like anyone out there. There have been alot of trials and tribulations and ups and downs, failures and gains but in the long and short of it, I have been blessed and I know that is not my doing but my higher power. I have tried each day to do my best and be my best but that has been involved in some struggles at times. Guessing at this age that I have figured some of this out and it has gotten better and now the page turner.
I hope to get myself in better health and take the time to do so. It is time to have less and do more. Things are not important nor are titles other Grammy and Mom and Wife, and family member and friend.
I am training my replacement and know that when I leave, there will be changes and that is good as well. It won't be the same but as a dear friend that was a doctor said on his retirement, they may miss me for a day or two but, never think you are too important or irreplaceable. Tomorrow starts a new day! I will try to make today the best day and strive to improve each day. Wishing you a great day! S
