I wrote this once and deleted it because I didn't want anyone to feel bad about having to work and maybe never get to retire, but I have that opportunity. I feel blessed.
Because I'm retired
I can sleep in until 8:00 after going to bed at midnight.
I can skip the naps because I get 8 hours almost every night.
I can stay in my robe until noon (I never did that before!).
I can go out to lunch with friends.
I can be part of a retiree lunch bunch.
I can blog and enjoy it.
I can take care of family when they need someone to be there.
I can go shopping during the day all year long.
I can really enjoy weekends and rest on Mondays.
I can take care of my grandkids during the week.
I can enjoy Sunday nights.
I can be a better person because I'm not tired all the time.
I can choose how I spend my time.
I can enjoy trying new recipes.
I can read more books.
I can garden all day long this spring.
I can enjoy my coffee every morning.
I can feel blessed.
