Big Changes....


I think there will be a LOT of this going on for my husband.....
In TWO WEEKS Jim is officially RETIRED!!!! Something he has been dreaming of, and a change that I am sure will be both joyous and challenging.
Like everyone else that finds themselves on a fixed income, I worry about our future. Between the news of becoming Grandparents and having a retired husband I suddenly feel very OLD.
I know that there are blessings in this life changing event, and I am grateful to God for the opportunities that lie ahead. I hope and pray that Jim finds joy and LOTS of things to keep him busy......maybe even cleaning his office !!!

Retirement is the BEST! Andy retired, it will be 3 years in April...it has been wonderful! He doesn't have all the corporate stress any more and everything is so much better...his health, his frame of mind...just everything. Life is very GOOD! ENJOY!

Annelies, with your positive outlook on life I am sure that everything will work out just fine.

And who knows, maybe you can open a quilting/photography business together :)

hugs

Annelies, just think of all the trips the two of you can now make. You can just pick up and go without thinking about vacation schedules for him.
