COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Thursday, July 20, 2017 and it is the 21st day until my 60th Birthday.

Time is a skipping along.

When I think back over my life thus far I am both happy and sad but mainly overjoyed.

I have really nothing to complain about for my life.

Of course, there have been some incredible lows but without them how would you ever appreciate the highs.

We all deal with losing loved ones well before their time, and I have had more than my share.

But it makes you realize that time is precious and you must live your life; whatever that means for you.

I am quite content with spending quiet time in my home with Alvin – in my house.

Putzing in my yard ….. growing flowers ……

Yes, really, I own my own house.

“I am a homeowner.”

Those are words I only dreamed of saying and to be honest a part of me never really believed would happen.

It was only when I made the decision to retire from a career of 30 years that I realized that it was even a possibility.

I knew it meant if things worked out that I would only semi-retire or take time off and then would go back to work.

I only wish that I was independently wealthy and that would solve so much but at this point in time, I am not quite there.

Have to leave that door open for possibilities.

Because after all anything is possible.

I will leave you with that for today …..

 

P.S.

One thing I wished that I had the house when my daughter was young instead of her growing up in an apartment.

She spent the first 22 years minus 18 months in an apartment.

Perhaps then she could have had a puppy – something she always wanted so badly.

But in adulthood has adopted four …. she made up for lost time.

I guess things always have a way of turning out ….. if you want them to ….

 

Always, Carol

Thought for the day…..

Each moment of each day is a blessing.

Take these precious moments and feel good.

If we remain aware of our feelings

Always keeping positive and loving

Life will transform itself in front of your eyes.

I wish for myself and for everyone – –

that your days are always filled with millions of good moments.

Good health and abundance to all.

Always, Carol

Thought for the day

Always take the time to envelope all that “Mother Nature” provides …… it can be simply watching a butterfly flutter around your back yard, or perhaps listening to a bumblebee buzzing from one flower to another.

I promise you will always feel better during, and after taking in those precious moments that Mother Nature so beautifully provides…… really there is nothing better!
