It's wonderful, Danette! When my husband died six years ago, I went into deep depression and was not able to work. I received disability from my employer for a year, but still not able to go work full-time after. I was in sales.. it was very stressful. So I quit! I don't have lots of money, only my late husband's pension and I work part-time whenever I feel like it. I don't have a big house, just a small apartment. I'm very good in budgeting so I am never without.
I had traveled the world when I was younger, had lived the fast life, had a wonderful marriage for 26 years, had loved and lost (lost for the most part). I am healthy (knock on wood), I eat healthy foods (most of the time anyway), I walk everyday, I take pictures and videos, visit my kids and cook Sunday brunch every other weekend.. they want Sunday brunch every week, but I have a life too! lol), sing karaoke, volunteer at the local animal shelter. I am busy enjoying life.
I hope I have another soulmate out there to enjoy life with, grow old together, walk hand and hand, dance in the rain. But, if not, I will still enjoy my golden years... I will still dance in the rain... nekkid!
