|A Long Hot walk!|
There is a major transition, a change, happening in Mr. and Mrs. UT’s lives soon. Hubs is retiring!
All depends on my frame of mind, ha!
The good news is, we like each other a lot, and one of the keys to our long standing marriage is we like to play together. We love to golf, bike, hike, and just hang out.
However, retiring was hard for me. It was a huge change I was not prepared for, and I went into a deep depression and my drinking increased.
I kept warning Mr. UT it might be harder than he thinks, but he wanted to do it while he could still be active and enjoy doing things. And he is not me!!
Changes can be hard, but life is change.
I am looking at this life change as a positive for both hubs and me!
I happened to find a poem, called, “Wind-Wafted Wild Flowers”, by Muriel Strode. You can read the whole poem here.
|Found on Our Walk|
Every line has much meaning, but there were several that spoke to me today.
Better than broad acres—a garden of hearts-ease.
Better than mines of gold—a mint of dreams.
Better than bars of molten silver—the silver of a laugh.
Better than strings of pearls—the crystal of a tear.Better than bands of choristers—a lute in the soul.”
