RETIREMENTS
Image
HAPPY RETIREMENT!
At long last - blissful retirement to do as I please!
Take a cruise, go fishing, live a life of ease!
If I opt to snooze-in, I'll continue to snore,
A slave to that infernal alarm clock never more!

Word that I'm happily loafing has got around.
Pleas to volunteer for community projects abound.
"Will you serve on this committee for this and that?"
'Tis useless to hide 'cause they know where I'm at!

I try to avoid all phone calls asking for me.
'Tis usually someone with another plaintive plea!
I must even skulk about for my afternoon nap,
That I highly prize with the remote on my lap!

Although I have tried with all my might,
I cannot escape from my hapless plight!
Lots of folks say that retirement is a bore;
Seems to me there's more to do than ever before!

Frances (Cobble) Dillard
Retired after 34 years as an Educator
with Greater Clark County Schools
 
Question: What do you love about retirement?
" I really enjoyed the kids and I miss their smiley faces.  Every day was different and I loved what I did.  But, I'm enjoying my retirement because I finally get to be my own BOSS!  No more deadlines, routines, and lesson plans. Now I can exercise, catch up on reading, leisure time (Sudoku), spend more time with the grandkids, and be available to family and friends.  It's my season and I'm loving it!"

Dorothy (Cobble) Ray

Image
Elaine (Cobble) Woods
Retired after 35 yrs as a Manager of Operations with Fresenius Medical Care
 
Question: What do you love about retirement?
"The one thing I love is being available to help others by volunteering, and helping family, friends, and neighbors.  I also love reconnecting and socializing with old friends and co-workers."
Congratulations on your retirement!

Lord, help me to grow in grace,
by being more kind and respectful

with godly reverence and fear.

Help me to be more grateful,
thankful to You for all things
help me to grow in grace . . .
