Retirement Is...

Because when I awaken,
I smile...
I don't have to go to work.

I am who I am.

No schedule!
I can do what I want, when I want.

No pressure of
being where I don't want to be,
doing what I don't want to be doing.

As quiet as I want...or not.

I am my own boss.

A question mark for Tag.
He is waiting for me to leave so he
can get his treat-filled kong
(that he used to get in his crate when I left for work).
All that came from just one
complete day of retirement.

And, just so ya know...
I can't wipe the smile off my face!

This beautiful bouquet is from Mandy!

 One of these days,
I will quit talking about my retirement...
and will have a few things to show you.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11
