I had friends over on Tuesday for lunch. I met these friends 15 years ago when I started teaching at their school. Now they have all retired. As one arrived, she said, "I just love being retired. I am so busy, I don't know how I would get it all done if I was still working!" I loved hearing all their stories relating to the next chapter, even though for me, it feels very far away.
As they left, I found comfort in knowing there is so much to do each day, no matter what our age or stage in life! They kindly brought me flowers and gifts. So as the weekend begins, I still am remembering these great ladies as I see them all around my house.
