Almost Retired

My mom had it rough. Fortunately she was smart and motivated and she did ok for herself. But she longed to retire while she was young enough to still travel. She absolutely loved going on cruises. And fortunately she took many and travelled extensively having seen so many wonderful places, that I can only dream of.

But she never got to retire. Her avatar on wordchums was called almost retired and she talked about it often.

But she couldn’t. It wasn’t feasible.

And I was thinking what sad fate that was. How she worked so hard for over 45 years, having to take care of herself and me and put herself through college, without any help at all. And she never got to stop working.


Just doesn’t make sense to me. But maybe I’m just easily confused.

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

  1. i have been fortunate and learned from my Father passing when he was 49 and i was barely 15. He taught me to save and enjoy life. I was able to retie at the age of 57. So i understand about your Mom. Even with my ex getting 50% of my pension , i live comfortably. Not able to travel as much as i would like or could prior to the divorce. But i can say i am happy Thank God.
    Peace n Love

  2. Something that took me a long time to realize was the now time. I was always looking forward to what was coming. When a happened then b could happen which would lead to c. However I missed so much right in front of me. Now I live for the moment. I want to be present now not at some imagined point in the future. Hugs sweets. πŸ™‚
